Review quote

"Strayed, in this collection of advice (some previously unpublished) for readers of her 'Dear Sugar' column on therumpus.net, chooses thought-provoking questions from her readers and listens deeply to their emotional content. In casually intimate prose and with literary grace, she creates moments of wise, compassionate insight in often startlingly personal miniature memoirs, cradling gentle but practical guidance with enough humor to cement Strayed's presence as both a mentor and the most understanding of friends. Sugar can be tough and honest, but she's never mean: in Sugar's world, we all deserve love unconditionally, but also owe it to ourselves to be the best, most authentic selves we can be. For a regrounding in the beauty of what it means to be flawed and gorgeously human, for answers that feel real, Strayed's caring essays offer surprisingly rich comfort." --"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) "This beloved Internet advice columnist, using the pseudonym Sugar, revealed herself in early 2012 to be the acclaimed novelist and memoirist Strayed. First appearing on the Rumpus in 2010, her column 'Dear Sugar' quickly attracted a large and devoted following with its cut-to-the-quick aphorisms like 'Write like a motherf*cker' and 'Be brave enough to break your own heart.' This collection gathers up the best of Sugar, whose trademark is deeply felt and frank responses grounded in her own personal experience; in many ways, it is a portrait of Strayed herself. She answers queries on subjects ranging from professional jealousy to leaving a loved partner to coping with the death of a child. VERDICT: Part advice, part personal essay, these pieces grapple with life's biggest questions. Beautifully written and genuinely wise, this book is full of heartache and love. Highly recommended." -- Molly McArdle, "Library Journal" (starred review) "Strayed offers insight into the world of online advice through her collection of letters sent to 'Dear Sugar, ' her once-
