Comrades : A Lifetime of Friendships by Rosita Boland

ISBN: 9781529176940

12.90

‘My dictionary’s first two definitions of ‘comrade’ are: A close companion. An intimate associate or friend. The third one is: A fellow soldier. My friends have been all those things to me.’
In this stunning essay collection, award-winning journalist Rosita Boland explores the many friendships that have shaped her life. Surprising and beautiful, she writes about the imaginary friends of early childhood, books that have provided companionship and joy, kindred spirits met while travelling, the friend she hoped might become something more, and also the friendships that become lost over time.

Life-affirming, affecting and wise, Comrades is a powerful exploration of what it is to live, to connect, and to be human in this world.

‘I was fascinated, moved and entertained by every page. This is the kind of book the world needs right now’ DONAL RYAN
‘A moving, beautiful and deeply felt meditation on friendship, loyalty and connectedness in a disconnected world’ HILARY FANNIN
