Written by Aminatou Sow & Ann Friedman
Big Friendship

Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman tell the story of their messy, life-affirming friendship in this honest and hilarious chronicle of its first decade.

Aminatou and Ann define Big Friendship as a strong, significant bond that transcends life phases, geographical locations, and emotional shifts. And they should know: the two have had moments of charmed bliss and deep frustration, of profound connection and gut-wrenching alienation. As the hosts of the hit podcast Call Your Girlfriend, they’ve become known for frank and intimate conversations. In this book, they bring that energy to their own friendship—its joys and its pitfalls.
