Meredith Goldstein discusses her new book, Can't Help Myself: Lessons and Confessions From A Modern Advice Columnist.Library: Miller
Every day thousands of readers look to Meredith's advice column,Love Letters, for wisdom on all matters of the heart: how to cope with dating fatigue and infidelity, work romances, tired marriages, true love, and true loss. In her column, she has it all figured out, but in her real life she is a lot less certain. As she searches for responses to their concerns, she's surprised to discover answers to her own. But it's after her mother is diagnosed with cancer that she truly realizes how special her Love Letters community is, how this column has enriched her life as much, if not more than, it has for its readers.
Can't Help Myself is the extraordinary (and often hilarious) story of a single woman navigating her mercurial love life, and a moving and poignant portrait of an amazing community of big-hearted, love-seeking allies.
Originally from Howard County, Meredith is an advice columnist and entertainment reporter for The Boston Globe. Love Letters has been running online and in the paper for eight years. Learn more about Meredith at meredithgoldstein.com.
"CAN'T HELP MYSELF is everything we need right now. Meredith is hilarious, smart, and-as you will learn-gives excellent advice without judgment. By the time I got to page two, I was already asking myself, 'how are we not friends?' Every page is a combination of relatable, funny, cringeworthy, and helpful. This book is evidence that none of us is alone, ever."―Alyssa Mastromonaco, New York Times Bestselling author of Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?
"Meredith Goldstein's warm, witty memoir about tending to an ailing mother and fraught love life while giving sage advice to strangers, offers a new perspective on the eternally confounding questions of love, sex, and friendship."―Ada Calhoun, author of Wedding Toasts I'll Never Give
