What does friendship mean today? What did it used to mean? How are Facebook, Twitter, and the rest of the online world changing the way we relate to one another - and ourselves? Bestselling author William Deresiewicz traces the history of friendship from Homer to Seinfeld to show how we got to where we are today, then explores the ways that social media are destroying intimacy, stunting our relationships, and diminishing our ability to understand ourselves.
