Strangers Tend to Tell Me ThingsStrangers tend to tell me things book cover
By Amy Dickinson

This is an autobiographical account of the life of Amy Dickinson, newspaper columnist of the syndicated advice column "Ask Amy". Full of insight and humour, this heartwarming account is sure to resonate with fans and new readers alike. She explains that her advice is often drawn from her own life experiences, not from having all the answers. Marriage, divorce, motherhood, remarriage, caring for aging parents, and building a strong blended family are some of the personal stories she tells with humility, grace and wisdom. All readers will enjoy this memoir of relationships.
