I’ve been trying to figure out how to talk about Gail Caldwell’s wonderful memoir, Let’s Take the Long Way Home, about her friendship with Caroline Knapp (author of Drinking: A Love Story), coming in August. How do you recommend a book in which the author’s two best friends, one human and the other canine, both die?

Perhaps the best way is to simply read from it, as Caldwell does here (via Shelf Awareness):
