About How to Be a Per­son in the World (Pen­guin), by Heather Havrilesky

Paradise - - Living -

This New York Times love and re­la­tion­ships best­seller is from the au­thor of the muchread ad­vice col­umn Ask Polly in New York magazine’s The Cut.

In this col­lec­tion of her work, Havrilesky guides read­ers through the ‘what if’s’ and ‘I don’t knows’ of mod­ern life. Tough love, wis­dom and wit are found in the au­thor’s re­sponses to lovers or haters, the anx­ious or the down-and-out.

Should you quit your day job to follow your dreams? How do you rein in an over­bear­ing mother? Will you ever stop dat­ing wishy­washy, non-com­mit­tal men? Should you put off hav­ing a baby for your ca­reer?

The praise from the au­thor’s peers is ex­ten­sive.

“The best ad­vice col­umn of her gen­er­a­tion,” gushed one writer in Esquire.
