Mini Review: “Let’s Take the Long Way Home: a Memoir of Friendship” by Gail Caldwell

Gail Caldwell and Caroline Knapp were long time friends.  Both were writers, Caroline the leading literary celebrity with her book Drinking:  a Love Story propelling her to popularity.  They also shared a love of drinking, which both had to overcome.  They also had a great love of dogs.  The book celebrates their levels of friendship, Caroline’s battle with cancer and Gail’s great grief at the loss of her friends.  This is a great read for lovers of books, lovers of dogs, and everyone who has had a deep friendship and lost that friend.
