Gail Caldwell wrote about their bond in the book “Let’s Take the Long Way Home: A Memoir of Friendship,” recently released in paperback.
Gail Galdwell in 2010 told Here & Now‘s Robin Young that writing about her friendship with Knapp was like trying to “capture air” because their relationship was about the “blissful routine of ordinary life.”
