Overview

Quincy, Talia, Chloe, and Jules met after answering a roommate ad for an apartment. Despite having little in common, the women became fast friends. A decade later, Quincy, a Midwestern introvert, is trying to overcome a set of tragedies by hunting for the perfect home; Talia, a high-energy California wife and mom, is growing resentful of her friends' greater financial stability; timid Chloe, from New England and also a mother, is trying to deflect pressure from her husband, a hedge fund manager, to play the role of trophy wife; and Jules, a fiercely independent New York City native and entrepreneur, is confronting her forties alone. As the women wrestle with the challenges of love and motherhood, will their relationships survive? Witty and wise, Sally Koslow's With Friends Like These hits an emotional bull's-eye for anyone who has had--or even been--a less than perfect pal. This high-five to sisterhood will leave you certain that close friends can never be replaced.

It wonderfully tells the story of four friends who met when they share an apartment when they are just out of school and they move on into and out of each other's lives. Told in chapters about each character, Koslow writes great cliffhangers. --Bookreporter.com <br> It's a West Side story. In an eight-room, rent-controlled apartment on 92nd and West End, Koslow's four twentysomething heroines -- Quincy, Talia, Chloe and Jules -- join forces as roommates in the 1990s. Fast-forward to the present, as job-sharing, multiple births and an underpriced fixer-upper co-op threaten their long friendships. Tragedy, comedy and plenty of Sex and the City in this summer novel. -- New York Post <br> Koslow digs much deeper than the standard pop novel aimed at a female readership.
