Sticky: Nina Gaby, #author of “Dumped: Stories of Women Unfriending Women” joins Matters Of The Mind tonight at 8p EST!

bookNina Gaby, editor of the the book “Dumped: Stories of Women Unfriending Women”, chats with Dr. Peter Sacco and Todd Miller about the book , as well as other topics such as why there is an apparent difference between male and female ‘refriending’, and also chat about Patricia Arquette’s Oscar speech!

Why do women ‘dump’ other women?  This book is full of 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 the USA 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.
