From the author of Miracle Girls: A Novel — winner of a 2015 USA Best Book Award and an Independent Publisher (IPPY) Gold Medal — comes the powerful collection of stories, Pretend I’m Your Friend.
A sister’s darkest secret is revealed at her brother’s wedding. A woman with extrasensory visions accidentally gives her philandering husband her blessing. A dying mother wishes her cancer was her daughters’, not hers. Pretend I’m Your Friend lays bare the fear, loss, and pain of love, sex, and family life in eleven crisp, engaging, and startlingly funny, elegantly entwined stories.
In MB Caschetta’s newest collection, despair is inseparable from the irrepressible drive to find life’s meaning and joy. Pretend I’m Your Friend makes compelling connections vital to the human spirit as only a work of great fiction can.
