In STRANGERS TEND TO TELL ME THINGS--her follow-up memoir to theNYTbestsellingThe Mighty Queens of Freeville--America's most popular advice columnist, "Ask Amy," shares her journey of family, second chances, and finding love.

By peeling back the curtain of her syndicated advice column, Amy Dickinson reveals much of the inspiration and motivation that has fueled her calling. Through a series of linked essays, this moving narrative picks up where her earlier memoir left off.

Exploring central themes of romance, death, parenting, self-care, and spiritual awakening, this touching and heartfelt homage speaks to all who have faced challenges in the wake of life's twists and turns. From finding love in middle-age to her storied experience with stepparenting to overcoming disordered eating to her final moments spent with her late mother, Dickinson's trademark humorous tone delivers punch and wit that will empower, entertain, and heal.

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
