    Life can be hard: your lover cheats on you; you lose a family member; you can’t pay the bills. And it can be great: you’ve had the hottest sex of your life; you get that plum job; you muster the courage to write your novel. Sugar—the once-anonymous online columnist at The Rumpus, now revealed as Cheryl Strayed, author of the best-selling memoir Wild—is the person thousands turn to for advice. Tiny Beautiful Things gathers the best of "Dear Sugar" in one place and includes never-before-published columns.

    "A big beautiful book"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Tiny Beautiful Things to be better than the print version?

    Well, yes. I think all authors should read their own work when possible, and hearing Strayed's voice as she retold some of these stories was very moving. I wasn't sure how an advice column would translate to audiobook format, but it was a very good read--fun, and in small, digestible bits.


    Which character – as performed by Cheryl Strayed and Steve Almond (intro) – was your favorite?

    I love Strayed and Almond both equally. They're awesome Sugars.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Tiny Beautiful Things?

    I think Strayed's message on the whole is one of kindness--to ourselves and to each other--and that's one that I hope will stick with me. Or I'll just listen to it again.

    Be inspired by saints like never before in My Life with the Saints by James Martin, SJ. This best-selling memoir of spiritual self-discovery is an homage to the saints who have accompanied Fr. Martin throughout his life. From a lukewarm childhood Catholicism, to the Wharton School of Business, to the executive fast track at General Electric, to the Jesuits, to a media career in Manhattan, Martin has relied on the saints to intervene in and guide his life.

    Amazon Customer says: "The title describes the book"
    "I really like this author, and am a fan of saints."

    What made the experience of listening to My Life With the Saints the most enjoyable?

    There's a certain charm in the blending of personal narrative and saintly biography that I find delightful. I enjoy people who are comfortable talking about themselves--not in the narcissistic way, but in the "I've done some reflecting on my life and would like to share it with you" way. Father Martin has that quality, and this is a good example of how he mixes himself with this subject.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The stories of the saints themselves, particularly those I didn't know much about, including the African martyrs.
