Should you quit your day job to follow your dreams? How do you rein in an overbearing mother? Will you ever stop dating wishy-washy, noncommittal guys? Should you put off having a baby for your career?
Heather Havrilesky, the author of the weekly advice column Ask Polly, featured in New York magazine’sThe Cut, is here to guide you through the “what if’s” and “I don’t knows” of modern life with the signature wisdom and tough love her readers have come to expect.
How to Be a Person in the World is a collection of never-before-published material along with a few fan favorites. Whether she’s responding to cheaters or loners, lovers or haters, the depressed or the down-and-out, Havrilesky writes with equal parts grace, humor, and compassion to remind you that even in your darkest moments you’re not alone.
“[T]he part of Havrilesky’s advice-giving that is not at all a throwback, is the feeling you get when reading it: that nothing else could be more important or feel more worthwhile to her than connecting with you. And, far from being on some kind of all-knowing deity’s pedestal, she often indicates she’s feeling around in the dark with all of us…. This makes her the exact right person for the job of ministering to them.”
“The title of Heather Havrilesky’s How to Be a Person in the World is almost too cute…. Like: do we really need a guide to that, and is that really what this is? But it turns out the answers are yes, actually, and yes…. Deeply personal [and] funny…. If you are even a little bit interested in people and the world, then this book will interest you. And if you think you aren’t interested in people or the world, then you should read this book anyway because it might surprise you by proving that there’s a lot to reward such interest—and compassion and empathy—after all.”
