Reviews

"[Klam's] smartest book yet...amusing, poignant...a rollicking must-read."
--People

"The book you will want to give all your best friends, not as a nudge-nudge, hint-hint reminder of what it takes to be a good friend, but rather as a celebration of just how great friends can be. And if they (or you) pick up a few hints on how to be a good friend, so much the better for everyone. We all need reminding once in awhile that connection takes more than just showing up for drinks or a walk -- and Klam offers the reminders with her usual big heart, goofy humor, and open admissions."
-- The Huffington Post

"[Klam is] taking seriously something, namely adult friendships, that often turns into the wallpaper of cultural life: something that's there, and that's lovely, and that ideally you don't have to think about, but not something that you would delve into deeply."
--NPR.org

"A smart read... with incisive one-liners and self-deprecating humor... Klam's warmth and wit is enough to keep this book light and engaging."
--USA Today

"Klam addresses real relationships and the raw problems of human life... [and] shares her personal, honest, funny, and poignant friend experiences"
--The Atlantic Wire

"A jolly, largehearted book...Julie Klam makes no claim to being a fancy expert. She has lived her expertise. Her own life is her source of knowledge... charming, nostalgic, informative."
--The Washington Post

"These pages are strewn with nuggets of wisdom and witticism...[a] warm hearted book."
--Dayton Daily News

"Klam's voice is often flat-out hilarious... [she] never fails to come up with terrific comic vignettes and sharp one-liners... highly entertaining."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Klam is funny. Not cute or amusing, but laugh-out-loud, borderline too-much-information funny... With Friendkeeping, Klam proves that she is no one-trick pony."
--BookPage

"Julie Klam is one funny writer."

--David Rakoff, author of Don't Get Too Comfortable and Fraud
