Friendships might just be the greatest love affairs of our lives . . .

In 2018 poet and author Michael Pedersen lost a cherished friend, Scott Hutchison, soon after their collective voyage into the landscape of the Scottish Highlands. Just weeks later, Michael began to write to him. As he confronts the bewildering process of grief, what starts as a love letter to one magical, coruscating human soon becomes a paean to all the gorgeous male friendships that have transformed his life.

'Boy Friends sees Pedersen illuminate these companions with a poet's eye, a comedian's timing - and a lover's care.'

'Pedersen is an enthralling narrator and his prose is poetic, written with enough electricity that it seems to jolt off the page. It is riotously funny . . . Boy Friends opens up conversations about vulnerable subjects: the brunt of suicide, the circumstances of certain types of Scottish masculinity and where friendships fit into that.'
