Sugar—the once-anonymous online columnist at The Rumpus, now revealed as Cheryl Strayed, is the person thousands have turned to for advice over the years.

A Touch of Schadenfreude
The number one best selling Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar reminds the reader to cherish the good times but also accept the hard truth that bad times are inevitable.
One minute you get your dream job, you’ve just had the hottest sex of your life, you get married… and the next moment, your lover cheats on you, you lose a family member, and you can’t pay the bills…
We, the readers, can’t help but secretly enjoy reading the intricate, tragic details about the darkest moments of someone else’s life – completely absorbed, yet detached from it all…
Nevertheless, even whilst describing the dark times, Cheryl reminds us to push on and fight through it all and never give up in the face of adversity – whether in love, or life in general. We are reminded to take the good with the bad and that simple motto is so easy to forget as we get caught up in the trials and tribulations of daily life.
Wisdom & Compassion
“Wise and compassionate.” —Gregory Cowles, New York Times Book Review “Inside the List”
In Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar, Cheryl takes the reader on an admirably frank, captivating journey through both the good and bad times in her life – and through it all, her wisdom and compassion shines through.
From the horrifying events in her younger years, ranging from experimenting with heroin, getting sexually abused by her grandfather and watching her first marriage disintegrate before her very eyes, the reader is taken on a very real, hard-hitting, emotional journey.
Through it all, however, Cheryl’s humour, determination, wisdom and compassion still manages to prevail over her lowest moments. Furthermore, Cheryl also reminds us to think hard about the life decisions we make and significantly, to also learn to accept that which we cannot control…
