Rich with humor, insight, compassion—and absolute honesty—this book is a balm for everything life throws our way.

Tiny Beautiful Things was adapted as a play that has been staged in theaters across the country and as a Hulu television series airing in 2023. Cheryl is also the author of Brave Enough, which brings together more than one hundred of her inspiring quotes, and the debut novel Torch. She has hosted two hit podcasts, Sugar Calling and Dear Sugars. She lives in Portland, Oregon.
“Revolutionary. . . . In Strayed’s hands, the advice column [is] a radical therapeutic experience. . . . like downing a cup of ayahuasca. . . Strayed would transform your existential problem into swooning, bespoke essays that exposed as much of the advice-giver as they did of the petitioner. . . . [She] has steadily opened up a new vocabulary for how we express ourselves, personally and politically." —The New Yorker
“Charming, idiosyncratic, luminous, profane. . . . Sugar is the ultimate advice columnist for the internet age. . . . She shines out amid the sea of fakeness.” —The New Republic
“Destined to become a classic of the form.” —Aimee Bender, author of The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake
“These pieces are nothing short of dynamite.” —Salon
