Leah McLaren wrote a beautiful column in last Saturday's Globe about the book "Let's Take the Long Way Home: A Memoir of Friendship"  written by Gail Caldwell five years after the death of her best friend, Caroline Knapp.  McLaren writes about the book and  female friendships in a very touching and thoughtful way.    I had already purchased the book when I read the column and it reinforced my decision to do so.   I have provided the link to the Globe column below and encourage you to read it.    http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/style/leah-mclaren/let-the-boys-have-their-bromances-sisterhood-is-the-hot-memoir-topic/article1712340/
