WINNER OF THE 2018 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD and a NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER: a moving story of love, friendship, grief, healing, and the magical bond between a woman and her dog.

'Delicious' Sunday Times 100 Best Summer Reads

'A true delight: I genuinely fear I won't read a better novel this year' Financial Times

When a woman unexpectedly loses her lifelong best friend and mentor, she finds herself burdened with the unwanted dog he has left behind. Her own battle against grief is intensified by the mute suffering of the dog, a huge Great Dane, and by the threat of eviction: dogs are prohibited in her apartment building.

Isolated from the rest of the world, increasingly obsessed with the dog's care, determined to read its mind and fathom its heart, she comes dangerously close to unravelling. But while troubles abound, rich and surprising rewards lie in store for both of them.

'Very, very clever. Mature. Entertaining. Eminently readable and re-readable. Absolutely delightful.' Irish Times

Review:

A true delight: I genuinely fear I won't read a better novel this year (Financial Times)

A beautiful book . . . crammed with a world of insight into death, grief, art, and love (Wall Street Journal)

Very very clever. Mature. Entertaining. Eminently readable and re-readable. In short, absolutely delightful. (Irish Times)

Delicious ... An intensely pleasurable read because it is so accessible, capacious and clever (Sunday Times)

A pitch-perfect novel ... Wry and moving, The Friend is a love story, a mania story and a recovery story (Vanity Fair)

A sneaky gut punch of a novel . . . a consummate example of the human-animal tale (Harper's Magazine)

The book is an intimate, beautiful thing, deceptively slight at around 200 pages, but humming with insight . . . [an] artfully discursive meditation on friendship, love, death, solitude, canine companionship and the life of an aging writer in New York .. peppered with wry observations (The Economist)

I loved it . . . It's one of my favourite books and it moved me (Whoopi Goldberg, The View)

A poignant reflection on loss and companionship (Marie Claire)

Often as funny as it is thoughtful, The Friend is an elegant meditation on grief, friendship, healing, and the bonds between humans and dogs (Buzzfeed)

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. WINNER OF THE 2018 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK OF 2018 A moving story of love, friendship, grief, healing, and the magical bond between a woman and her dog. When a woman unexpectedly loses her lifelong best friend and mentor, she finds herself burdened with the unwanted dog he has left behind. Her own battle against grief is intensified by the mute suffering of the dog, a huge Great Dane traumatised by the inexplicable disappearance of its master, and by the threat of eviction: dogs are prohibited in her apartment building. While others worry that grief has made her a victim of magical thinking, the woman refuses to be separated from the dog except for brief periods of time. Isolated from the rest of the world, increasingly obsessed with the dog's care, determined to read its mind and fathom its heart, she comes dangerously close to unravelling. But while troubles abound, rich and surprising rewards lie in store for both of them. Elegiac and searching, THE FRIEND is both a meditation on loss and a celebration of human-canine devotion. "A beautiful book . a world of insight into death, grief, art, and love." -Wall Street Journal "A penetrating, moving meditation on loss, comfort, memory.Nunez has a wry, withering wit." -NPR "Dry, allusive and charming.the comedy here writes itself." The New York Times WINNER OF THE 2018 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD and a NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER: a moving story of love, friendship, grief, healing, and the magical bond between a woman and her dog.
