The Friend

The Friend

by Sigrid Nunez

Unexpectedly profound is the outcome of Nunez's endeavor to marry together themes of loss and despair with wry, yet sincere ponderings over the nature of our canine companions. Nunez writes a darkly humorous and poignant story of a woman grappling with the death of a friend. This book generates its value in an emotional currency not often found in literature and is a well-earned recipient of the National Book Award.
