Sasahara. Berger, Thomas, date. As of September 2000, his best friend’s ways with women were still a wonder to Sam Grandy, not because there could be any question of Roy Courtright’s physical or personal charms, but rather because Sam’s own temperament was such that he could not have pretended, let alone sustained, an intimate interest in more than one woman at a time.
Best Friends" by Thomas Berger is about two grown men, Roy and Sam, who have been friends since childhood. As adults, it seems like they fight to keep a connection despite no longer having anything in common. Roy is very handsome, a playboy, came into an inheritance, and owns a used luxury car dealership purely out of his sheer joy for high-end cars. It is wonderful to write that in his 22nd novel Thomas Berger maintains the high standard that readers have come to expect from him. Best Friends is one of his miniatures (unlike Arthur Rex or the Little Big Man books) in which he focuses on a few characters over a short span of time.
