'I was fascinated, moved and entertained by every page. This is the kind of book the world needs right now' DONAL RYAN

‘My dictionary’s first two definitions of ‘comrade’ are:

A close companion.
An intimate associate or friend.

The third one is:
A fellow soldier.

My friends have been all those things to me.’

In this stunning collection, award-winning journalist Rosita Boland explores the friendships that have shaped her life. Surprising and beautiful, she writes about books that provided companionship and counsel, soulmates met while travelling, a childhood hero who became a cherished friend, the surprise encounters that can change and enrich a life in an instant.

Rosita also writes with a rare honesty on loneliness, the pain of unrequited love, the loss of friendships through death or a simpler yet no less devastating, growing apart.

Life-affirming, poignant and wise, Comrades is a stunning exploration of what it is to live, to connect, and to be human in this world.
