Best Friends, Yvette Nachmias-Baeu

Best Friends is a story of an unusual relationship between two gifted women who share their lives in a correspondence that spans three decades. It is autobiographical and yet it is also the memoir of a brilliant woman with remarkable vitality, whose life is continually interrupted and altered by bouts of schizophrenia. Overarching moments of shared experiences and gossip, Best Friends reveals a period of time, a now almost distant history, filled with personal and social transformations that affected our lives. I was deeply moved by the story of Beth’s yearning to become a great writer which perhaps has been realized in the pages of Best Friends.

Best Friends is one of the most unique, but beautiful books I have ever read courtesy of the exceptional author Yvette Nachmias-Baeu. Best Friends is a book that is hard to describe because it is part memoir, part autobiography and maybe even part history thanks to the many real-life historical events that are explored throughout the book. Yvette Nachmias-Beau is the author of Best Friends, and throughout the book, she narrates her journey which was eventful and poignant and should definitely not be missed.

Best Friends is a book I was desperate to read ever since discovering it, and this is because plot alludes to a poignant journey and a condition. Best Friends is written by Yvette Nachmias-Baeu, and throughout the book she will share letters which tell the story of her and her friend Beth’s lives. The letters exchanged between the two were done so over twenty-seven years and will take the reader on an expansive journey from San Francisco to New York all throughout many decades. Together the two had many adventures and were involved in the art and political scene in the sixties, and this introduced them to many stars including Dustin Hoffman and Bob Dylan.

The reader throughout the book will follow Yvette and Beth on their journeys, and the journey the reader is taken on is a profound one especially because so much of it is shared throughout letters which are in themselves personal and poignant, it makes the book even more moving. If you are a reader who loves to be taken on a moving journey and to learn of key events in history through the eyes of people who were there, then Best Friends is for you and should not be missed!

Yvette Nachmias- Beau’s story is an exceptional one that will speak volumes to many readers, especially to those that have experienced the same events the two women do or those that have a condition such as Schizophrenia. The story, although at times is incredibly profound, it is still an inspiring one because the women the reader is introduced to are phenomenal and will inspire readers for a long time. Yvette, as well as Beth, are truly wonderful women, both for their incredible writing but also for her reasons for sharing her story to help as well as inspire and move readers.

Best Friends is an informative, well-written memoir with words that flow beautifully throughout and so I have no choice but to award this stunning book a brilliant five stars. If you are a reader who loves memoirs with a purpose and love to be informed on situations/illnesses that you are not aware of, then Best Friends will make the perfect read for you, so do not miss this book!
