Do you wonder why you keep dating people who can’t commit? Or whether you should admit your affair to your spouse? Or whether you should stick with that dead end job or pursue life as an artist? These are dilemmas that Heather Havrilesky constantly ponders in her advice column, “Ask Polly” for New York Magazine. The columnist isn’t shy about dishing out tough medicine or admitting her own flaws as a mother. She talks about her new book, “How To Be A Person in the World: Ask Polly’s Guide Through the Paradoxes of Modern Life.”
