Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Someone Who's Been There
|Author:||Cheryl Strayed; James Roxburgh (Editor)|
Life can be hard: your lover cheats on you; you lose a family member; you can't pay the bills--and it can be great: you've had the hottest sex of your life; you get that plum job; you muster the courage to write your novel. Sugar--the once-anonymous online columnist at The Rumpus, now revealed as Cheryl Strayed, author of the bestselling memoir Wild--is the person thousands turn to for advice.
Rich with humour, insight, compassion - and absolute honesty - Tiny Beautiful Things is a balm for everything life throws our way, administered by the author of the New York Times-bestselling memoir, Wild
Strayed's worldview - her empathy, her nonjudgment, her belief in the fundamental logic of people's emotions and experiences despite occasional evidence to the contrary - begins to seep into readers' consciousness in such a way that they can apply her generosity of spirit to their own and, for a few hours at least, become better people... courageous and engaging stuff. New York Times Charming, idiosyncratic, luminous, profane... Sugar is the ultimate advice columnist for the internet age... She shines out amid the sea of fakeness New Republic These pieces are nothing short of dynamite... Here at Salon we're reading the columns with boxes of tissue and raised fists of solidarity, shaking our heads with awe and amusement Salon Might be one of the most profound yet enjoyable books you will read this summer... Profane, funny and incredibly moving Irish Times I couldn't bring myself to stop reading... It made me laugh out loud and it made me gasp with disbelief... The writing is addictively, breathtakingly great -- Viv Groskop Observer
