Funny and illuminating . . . A clever, sharp novel about proper growing up -- Viv Groskop * Red *

Emily Gould is massively talented, just as good at devastating us with an emotional truth as she is at amusing us with a clever joke * Curtis Sittenfeld, author of Prep and Sisterland *
Truth-teller Emily Gould hurls her heart and mind into this hilarious, bittersweet tale -- Jami Attenberg, author of The Middlesteins
I read Friendship with great pleasure. Emily Gould recreates with wit and insight the New York I know: a place full of fame and money that's not yours, where friends become family and lovers become ex-lovers, and the big questions about your life stay unanswered, and unanswerable, for a long time -- Chad Harbach, author of The Art of Fielding
Friendship's characters are brave, smart, wounded, stupid, petty and wise, like most of the people I know and love. Gould's humor and honesty gets us good and close to this world, and her wonderful particularity makes familiar things new again -- Sam Lipsyte, author of The Ask
And the Heart Says Whatever comes by its anger and melancholy honestly, and it makes sense of much that is puzzling about our cultural moment -- Jonathan Franzen, praise for And the Heart Says Whatever
