"Can We Still Be Friends" is the debut novel by Alexandra Shulman, editor of British Vogue. It's the summer of 1983 and best friends, Salome, Annie and Kendra have left university to embark on adulthood. Three very different girls with very different paths ahead. Sal, the aspiring journalist whose personal demons threaten to destroy everything she has achieved. Annie, the capable domestic beauty, convinced that marriage will give her everything she wants. Kendra, the daughter of chic, liberal parents who, searching for her own identity, encounters a life she never expected. As they navigate the decade of ra-ra skirts and shoulder pads, Duran Duran and Margaret Thatcher, they discover that the future is what happens to you, not what you plan. Their interwoven tale captures brilliantly what it is to learn the exhilarating and painful truths about love, work, family and the ties of friendship. "Wonderfully evokes that ping-pong between trivial and tremendous so characteristic of the Eighties ...great on atmosphere...An engaging debut, alive with human sympathy". (Wendy Holden, "Daily Mail"). "Warm and entertaining ...captures the excitement of being young and glamorous at a time when the sky really did seem to be the limit". (Kate Saunders, "The Times"). "Shulman has a terrific eye for the small yet telling detail". ("Observer Magazine"). Alexandra Shulman has edited British Vogue since 1992. She is a contributor to "The Times", "Daily Mail", "Guardian" and "Daily Telegraph" and lives in London. "Can We Still Be Friends" is her first novel.
