We Should Not Be Friends

We Should Not Be Friends

by Will Schwalbe

This is the story of the beauty of lifelong friendships. Opposites in every way, Will and “Maxey” meet as Yale juniors when they are chosen to join a secret society meant to bring together people who would never meet otherwise. Their year together led to the 40-plus year friendship they enjoy today. I admit that I didn’t like Will for most of the book until I realized that I, too, would write my friends as the better people. I also reminded my husband to contact his friends more often.
