Sisters—listen up! This book will help you put your finger on why it's your sister, not your brother, you phone for a chat, why sisters often feel dual impulses toward closeness and competition, and the special ways sisters often communicate with and support each other, garnering one of life's great gifts. Drawing on insights from bountiful interviews (as well as her own richly sistered life), Tannen comes across—in her writing and her delivery—as wise, wonderfully informed, but never overly serious—the kind of sister every woman longs for. Her gift for translating her well-researched academic work into everyday communication is fully evidenced here. Tannen is a smoothly informal narrator who spins an easily understood story—as old as families—into something that feels freshly insightful.
