The Friend by Sigrid Nunez
The 2018 National Book Award for fiction went to what NPR named "A penetrating, moving meditation on loss, comfort, memory" in which a woman unexpectedly loses her lifelong best friend and mentor, only to find herself burdened with the unwanted dog he has left behind. The New York Times Book Review said, "Nunez’s prose itself comforts us. Her confident and direct style uplifts—the music in her sentences, her deep and varied intelligence."
