A Wide and Complex Range

There is a very popular genre of fiction about female friendships and the enduring nature of their love.

This is very nice.

Yesterday, one of my best friends called me from Austin and said that his daughter and his ex-wife were at each other's throats on Mother's Day. Long held resentments, etc. "They love each other and can't stand each other."


DQ Reader My Wife has a friendship cell that has lasted for over thirty years. Best friends forever. Two of these women stopped speaking to each other a decade ago.

Thinking about all this, I decided to revise the title of some popular women's friendship books to be slightly more descriptive.
