Essential reading admirably candid and well-crafted GUARDIAN

As a society, there is a tendency to elevate romantic love. But what about friendships? Aren't they just as if not more important? So why is it hard to find the right words to express what these uniquely complex bonds mean to us?

In this fascinating, insightful and uniquely moving book, Elizabeth Day embarks on a journey to find out. Friendaholic unpacks the significance and evolution of friendship from the ancient wisdom of Cicero to the modern curse of ghosting. How and why do we make friends? Is friendship an antidote to loneliness? How should we deal with a frenemy? And is it ok to end a friendship that has gone awry?

Friendaholic examines what makes a good friend and asks us what kind of friend we want to be to each other but also to ourselves.

THE GUARDIAN

(An)eloquent, disarmingly honest book

DAILY MIRROR

A generous, companionable guide to a part of life every bit as crucial and as fraught as romance or family.

THE DAILY MAIL

This book is brilliant. Jo Elvin

Ive never read a book about friendships before. This one really digs deep, is bravely revealing and makes me reflect on my own friendship habits, issues, and culture. Bernardine Evaristo

I really want to say that reading Elizabeth Day feels like listening to a friend, but it's complicated by the fact that Im an actual friend who makes an appearance in this book on friendship. But fuck it, it's true: reading Elizabeth Day feels like listening to a friend. And reading her on this strangely neglected theme is a revelation. Friendships can mean as much, sometimes even more than family, and finally we have a book that treats the subject with the seriousness it deserves. And Day is the best possible guide: funny, moving, helpful and true, Friendaholic deserves a massive audience. Sathnam Sanghera
