A new book by Amy Silverstein

My Glory Was I Had Such Friends

My Glory Was I Had Such Friends

Now Available

Amy Silverstein's new heart—received when she was 25—beat strong for twenty-six years, far longer than its ten-year prognosis. Then, as her steadfast heart failed, the acclaimed author of Sick Girl was hospitalized, and her friends crossed the country in shifts as she waited on the precipice for a life-saving heart transplant. My Glory Was I Had Such Friends is her powerful, inspiring story.

We were grown daughters all, some mothers of high school or college kids, a few of us seasoned career women. We had become our middle-aged selves. Our wisest, steadiest, most powerful selves yet. And we discovered a new best in ourselves together because I was dying, really dying this time, and we weren’t twenty-five anymore.” In her new book, My Glory Was I Had Such Friends, Amy Silverstein tells a once-in-a-lifetime story about the power of friendship and the resilience of the human spirit.

"There’s a special air around crisis that makes true intimacy possible in ways that daily life rarely does. Amy Silverstein has tapped into that moment with a cast of women who will make you pine for your nearest and dearest."
   —Kelly Corrigan, Author of the New York Times bestsellers The Middle Place and Glitter and Glue
