Dear Mariella : An Indispensable Guide to Twenty-First-Century Living
HELP! is guaranteed to bring relief. It is an airing cupboard for the complexities of modern life. A place to gather together the dilemmas that define twenty-first-century living, hang them out and then scrutinize them from all angles. Other people's dilemmas have much to tell us about our own lives, and this collection of quandaries from Mariella Frostrup - approachable in her own (self-proclaimed) imperfection - may not solve your problems but it will undoubtedly make you think, and certainly make you laugh.

'Dear Mariella, I wish to thank you for replying to my e-mail in your column today. Your advice had the rather strange effect of energising and uplifting me. I make it sound a bit like a Boots aromatherapy oil but I can't describe it any other way.' 'I love you, Mariella! Your advice column always seems spot-on to me. You can tell people to sort themselves out without coming across as tactless and uncaring. You give useful advice without being patronising, or all-knowing. And you are great at consistently writing a column that is entertaining and extremely funny.' 'Dear Ms Frostrup, I find your commentary gorgeously written, truly incisive and ultimately, extremely reassuring. I hope that the folks who write to you feel the same.'
