Introduction

(

Apowerful and compassionate debut novel about friendship andhow it helpsshape us into the people we are

Spanning years and continents, beginnings and ends, The Intimates is about how Maize and Robbie, two smart and striving people, discover themselves in the reflection they see in each other, and how their connection comes to define their place in the world. It is about the near-romantic intensity of passionate young friendship; the vexed yet unshakable bonds between children and parents; the mesmerizing thrall of sex and the false illusions that are part of its spell; the thrills and disappointments of becoming an adult; the exhilarating prospect of restarting your life repeatedly and the limits of personal reinvention; and the secrets we hide from others and ourselves as we struggle to find our true character.
