So if you are still, as Day was at one point, determined to maintain every friendly connection you’ve ever had, it is an index not of your niceness but of your desperate need to hang on to several skips’ worth of emotional lumber. Well, Day sets about redressing this imbalance with a vengeance, interspersing powerful and insightful chapters on various aspects of friendship—personified by her relationships with particular individuals—with short passages written by a variety of interesting, and often marginalised, people.

For me personally, failed friendships have left lasting scars on my soul; the successful ones mean more to me than I can say. Her memoir, How To Fail: Everything I’ve Ever Learned From Things Going Wrong is a Sunday Times top 5 bestseller and has been described as ‘life-changing’ by critics. Those are the midweek get-togethers (neither of you would dream of giving up a Saturday night to each other) which are somehow never as nice as they should be and leave you feeling down, depleted and as if it is somehow all your fault. This book absolutely hit the spot for me, and it’s been a long time since a book has got me this good. This is a very personal and relatable account of cultivating and maintaining friendships throughout challenging times and phases of life - not always a smooth or rewarding process, which will resonate with many readers, as with myself.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

She suggests, not quite jokingly, that it might be a good idea to send potential friends the equivalent of a pre-nup before agreeing to a first coffee date. Elizabeth Day is an author, journalist and podcaster and if you’ve listened to her amazing podcasts How to Fail and more recently Best Friend Therapy, you’ll know she’s charming, witty and incredibly open.These phrases capture the frequently replicated finding that female friends like to "just talk" and view this activity as central to their friendship.
