Liz Pryor’s What Did I Do Wrong is about the evolution of women’s friendship. Pryor chronicles the trying times of friendship by interviewing several women regarding their friendship with other women.
In the book, Pryor encourages her readers to analyze the kind of friends they have. What are women doing to keep their friends closer?
In one of the chapters of the book, she talks about how, without warning, your closest girlfriend can cut you off completely without so much as a phone call or email. She portrays how a friend, for no reason whatsoever, can move on with her life and leave you trying to make sense of everything. Pryor sees this kind of friendship as an experience that is as painful as the death of a loved one and as confusing as an unexpected breakup.
This is when you ask yourself, what did I do wrong?
The book inspires you to be more forthright and compassionate with both new and old friends. You might even reconnect with a lost one. In the end, the stories of broken friendships, strong ones, renewed ones, will uplift you - and that is what makes this book a treasure.
