Award-winning author Sigrid Nunez’s new novel The Friend is a New York Times Book Review Editor’s Choice and tells the story of a woman who unexpectedly loses her lifelong best friend and mentor, and finds herself burdened with the unwanted dog he has left behind. It is a moving story of love, friendship, grief, healing, and the magical bond between a woman and her dog.
