Friendship, Emily Goulds debut novel, traces the evolution of a friendship with humor and wry sympathy. Gould examines the relationship between two women who want to help each other but sometimes cant help themselves; who want to make good decisions but sometimes fall prey to their own worst impulses; whose generous intentions are sometimes overwhelmed by petty concerns As Bev and Amy are dragged, kicking and screaming, into real adulthood, they have to face the possibility that growing up might mean growing apart Bev Tunney and Amy Schein have been best friends for years; now, at thirty, theyre at a crossroads. Bev is a Midwestern striver still mourning a years-old romantic catastrophe. Amy is an East Coast princess whose luck and charm have too long allowed her to cruise through life. Bev is stuck in circumstances that would have barely passed for bohemian in her mid-twenties: temping, living with roommates, drowning in student-loan debt. Amy is still riding the tailwinds of her early success, but her habit of burning bridges is finally catching up to her. And now Bev is pregnant

Unlikable people in novels are the BEST. (In real life? Not so much, of course.) I enjoyed this first novel because the characters are the WORST. (By which I mean the BEST; see sentence #1.) The inside look at their selfishness, bad choices, and, most of all, human-ness, made it a compelling read. For fans of the HBO series "Girls", which also has the audacity of having female characters who are just as horrible and flawed as we expect male characters to be.

Not impressed. Just a little story about two friends who were not even that nice to each other. They just keep coming together because no one else likes them. Bleh.
