Bev and Amy are best friends but, at thirty, they have reached a crossroads. Bev is stuck in circumstances that would barely have passed muster in her twenties: temping, living in a shared house, drowning in debt. Amy is a fiercely charismatic media darling still riding the tailwinds of early success, but reality is catching up with her. And now Bev is unexpectedly pregnant. As the two friends are dragged into genuine adulthood, they are forced to contemplate the possibility that growing up might mean growing apart.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A dazzling debut * Glamour *
Funny and illuminating . . . A clever, sharp novel about proper growing up -- Viv Groskop * Red *
Provides . . . enlightening insights into what it is to be female and coming of age in twenty-first-century New York, but there's the warm glow of real friendship too * Daily Mail *
A sharp study of female friendship, that treacherous terrain where envy and deep fondness often go hand in hand * Observer *
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
