Can We Still Be Friends




A debut novel by British Vogue's editor follows three twenty-something female friends who graduate together in the 1980s

It's the summer of 1983 and best friends, Salome, Annie and Kendra have left university to embark on adulthood. Three very different girls with very different paths ahead.

- Sal, the aspiring journalist whose personal demons threaten to destroy everything she has achieved.
- Annie, the capable domestic beauty, convinced that marriage will give her everything she wants.
- Kendra, the daughter of chic, liberal parents who, searching for her own identity, encounters a life she never expected.

As they navigate the decade of ra-ra skirts and shoulder pads, Duran Duran and Margaret Thatcher, they discover that the future is what happens to you, not what you plan.

Their interwoven tale captures brilliantly what it is to learn the exhilarating and painful truths about love, work, family and the ties of friendship.
