Elliott Bay Book Company says
Portland writer Kerry Cohen examines the complexities and difficulties of female friendships --including bullying, competition and failed relationships--in her new book, Girl Trouble ( Hawthorne Books), illustrated by the author’s sister, artist Tyler Cohen.

“While recognizing that ‘memory is a slippery eel,"’Cohen surveys the dozens of relationships with women she has enjoyed and endured, showing how friendship changes with different stages and how she has as well. ‘I miss all of my ex-friends,’ she writes toward the conclusion. ‘They are stamped onto my heart like old romances, lost loves. They are parts of me in ways no one warned me they would be.’ A brief, canny book that will make any girl who feels alone feel less alone.”-Booklist

Kerry Cohen is a writer and psychotherapist, a member of the faculty of the Red Earth Low-Residency MFA Program and she is also the author of Loose Girl, Seeing Ezra and of other books.

Co-presented with Hugo House.
