Got a personal dilemma you need advice on? Millions of readers visit Dear Prudence on Slate each week.
From 2016 to 2021 Daniel Lavery was ‘Prudie’ dispensing advice on such questions as ‘I think I’m in love with my brother’s wife. How do I handle this?’ and ‘I’m nonbinary and changed my name three years ago, but my mum won’t stop dead-naming me. How do I talk to her?’ Lavery’s new collection Dear Prudence contains everything lovable about the column – good-humoured advice on contemporary conundrums and thoughtful correctives to tough love.
He joins comedian Tom Sainsbury for some Kiwi advice.
