Life can be hard: your lover cheats on you; you lose a family member; you can't pay the bills -- and it can be great: you've had the hottest sex of your life; you get that plum job; you muster the courage to write your novel. Sugar -- the once-anonymous online columnist at The Rumpus, now revealed as Cheryl Strayed, author of the bestselling memoir Wild -- is the person thousands turn to for advice. Tiny Beautiful Things brings the best of Dear Sugar in one place and includes never-before-published columns and a new introduction by Steve Almond. Rich with humor, insight, compassion -- and absolute honesty -- this book is a balm for everything life throws our way.
