Rich with humour, insight, compassion — and absolute honesty — Tiny Beautiful Things is a balm for everything life throws our way, administered by the author of the New York Times-bestselling memoir, Wild

Life can be hard: your lover cheats on you, you lose a family member, you can't pay the bills. But it can be pretty great, too: you've had the hottest sex of your life, you get that plum job, you muster the courage to write your novel. Everyday across the world, people go through the full and glorious gamut of life — but sometimes, a little advice is needed.
For several years, thousands turned to Cheryl Strayed, a then-anonymous internet Agony Aunt. But unlike most Agony Aunts, this one's advice was spun from genuine compassion and informed by a wealth of personal experience — experience that was sometimes tragic and sometimes tender, often hilarious and often heartbreaking. Having successfully battled her own demons while hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, Cheryl Strayed sat down to answer the letters of the frightened, the anxious, the confused; and with each gem-like correspondence — of which the best are collected in this volume — she proved to be the perfect guide for those who had got a little lost in life.

    De un tiempo para acá me he dado cuenta que ciertas lecturas llegan a ti en el momento adecuado y Tiny Beautiful Things es una de ellas. Cheryl Strayed es divertida, amorosa y brutal en sus respuestas, todo a un mismo tiempo, como la vida en sí, me atrevo a decir. Un goce leerla.

Quotes

    Анастасия Шкляеваhas quoted6 years ago
    It’s what most of us have to give a few times over the course of our lives: to love with a mindfully clear sense of purpose, even when it feels outrageous to do so.
    Seth Bingohas quotedlast year
    Love is the feeling we have for those we care deeply about and hold in high regard. It can be light as the hug we give a friend or heavy as the sacrifices we make for our children. It can be romantic, platonic, familial, fleeting, everlasting, conditional, unconditional, imbued with sorrow, stoked by sex, sullied by abuse, amplified by kindness, twisted by betrayal, deepened by time, darkened by difficulty, leavened by generosity, nourished by humor, and “loaded with promises and commitments” that we may or may not want or keep. The best thing you can possibly do with your life is to tackle the motherfucking shit out of love.

    I choose to love this time for once with all my intelligence
