Candid, relatable stories by established and emerging women writers about being discarded by someone from whom they expected more: a close female friend. There are 161 million women in America today, and our friendships are still as primary and universal as back when Ruth and Naomi, Elizabeth and Susan B., and Thelma and Louise made history. When a romantic relationship breaks up, no problem--there's an Adele song for that. Health concerns; problems in school; issues at the workplace? We've got our chums to prop us up. Until we don't. When our most sustaining relationships dissolve--those with the women friends in our lives--there's never been the fanfare that accompanies the loss of other relationships society deems "more important." Until now. In Dumped: Stories of Women Unfriending Women , twenty-five established and emerging writers--including Jacquelyn Mitchard, Ann Hood, Carrie Kabak, Jessica Handler, Elizabeth Searle, Alexis Paige, and editor Nina Gaby--explore the fragile, sometimes humorous, and often unfathomable nature of lost friendship. These, like your own, are stories that stay with you--maybe for a lifetime.

These stories are interesting but the most interesting thing to me (male identified) is that they do not read/seem/feel much different from stories in the lives of men. It may be that men don't write stories like these (but is that really true?)

It reinforces the lack of difference and I did not expect that.

I loved reading this book. I could relate because this has happened to me. I highly recommend.
