Dear Prudence (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Collected wisdom from the internet's best-loved advice columnist.

'I'm nonbinary and changed my name three years ago, but my mum won't stop dead-naming me. How do I talk to her?'

'My husband keeps leaving his toenail clippings around the house. I've started slipping them into his coffee cup. Is there a better solution?'

'I think I'm in love with my brother's wife. How do I handle this?'

A collection of the weirdest and wildest questions sent to Slate's longtime agony aunt, internet darling Daniel M. Lavery, whose sympathetic, thoughtful, good-humoured advice is read by millions.

Featuring new material as well as fan favourites, this is a must-have for 'Dear Prudence' fans and a dose of good sense, compassion, and understanding in an increasingly fractured world.
