Amy Dickinson writes the syndicated "Ask Amy" advice column, which replaced the Ann Landers column in 2003.

Editorial Reviews

"Amy Dickinson's Strangers Tend to Tell Me Things is a very funny, whip-smart, charming, and addictively engaging memoir. I felt myself wanting to jump into the pages and be with all of Amy's people, and of course Amy. The wisdom she is well known for is present on every page without knocking you over the head. This is a book you will want to read and give to the people you love (and maybe the people you aren't so crazy about)."-Julie Klam, New York Times bestselling author of You Had Me at Woof
