Ever spent sleepless nights feeling fearful or lonely? Been anxious about money, family or partners? Worried about your sexuality, your body weight, or the size of your genitalia? Loved someone, but they drove you mad? Felt crippled by shyness, anger or unhappiness? Or perhaps you just enjoy the vicarious thrill of reading about other people's problems? Dear Mariella is guaranteed to bring relief. It is an airing cupboard for the complexities of modern life. Other people's dilemmas have much to tell us about our own lives, and this collection of quandaries from journalist, broadcaster and Observer agony aunt Mariella Frostrup may not solve your problems but it will undoubtedly make you think, and certainly make you laugh.

Review quote

'Whether you've got problems in the office or the bedroom, Mariella's sensible, sensitive musings are sure to point you in the right direction' Red Magazine 'This compilation of Frostrup's agony column, subtitled 'An Indispensable Guide to Twenty-First Century Living', allows us to take a look at other people's problems ... The humour unpicks a catalogue of modern crises to reveal that life's complexities don't alienate us from one another but rather create a common ground to meet on' Observer 'Everyone loves Mariella ... She's feisty, she apologises for nothing, she's sexy, she's fun ... Mariella gives it her sparky all. More a showcase to air her own views than about the dilemmas themselves, this is (obviously) merely another reason to read it' Big Issue in Scotland 'Frostrup is a worthy agony aunt and demonstrates common sense and wit' Glasgow Herald
