What is it that makes female friendship so special / complex / intense / important / messy / supportive / essential?

From growing up together to growing apart, from the oldest of friends to the fake ones, our relationships with other women can be our greatest loves. They can also be difficult, elusive and the source of our deepest heartbreaks.

In Let Me Know When You’re Home, fifteen women writers look at female friendship in all its forms, in a collection of fiction, non-fiction and poetry that is both a frank exploration of these relationships and a true celebration of what women can achieve with the support of each other.

A compelling, honest and heartfelt collection, this is a book to be passed between friends, treasured by women and returned to again and again.
