Let's Take the Long Way Home: A Memoir of Friendship by Gail Caldwell

Let's Take the Long Way Home is a memoir by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Gail Caldwell about her relationship with her friend and fellow writer, Caroline Knapp. They shared much in common, including an alcoholic past and close relationship with their dogs. When Caroline was diagnosed with cancer, they spent her end of days together. Let's Take the Long Way Home has received positive reviews with the New York Times saying, "This may be a book about death and loss, but Caldwell's greatest achievement is to rise above all that to describe both the very best that women can be together and the precious things they can, if they wish, give back to one another: power, humor, love and self-respect."
