STRANGERS TEND TO TELL ME THINGS A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Coming Home

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Amy Dickinson

Biography & Memoir • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Amy Dickinson, who writes the syndicated "Ask Amy" advice column and contributes to NPR's "Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me," is back with a second memoir. In this one she delves into her own personal stories of making her way through life. Many listeners will find her anecdotes relatable as she adopts a down-to-earth, open tone to recount both uplifting and challenging experiences, such as finding love again in middle age with a childhood friend and forging new family ties, caring for aging parents, and discovering what she values. Her heartfelt voicing displays her empathy as well as her sense of humor, both of which shine through in the answers she gives to those who write to her for advice. S.E.G.
