Introduction

In some ways, it's never been an easier time to be human. And yet modern life has brought us a whole new set of problems to deal with.

Heather Havrilesky's advice column 'Polly' originated as a comic strip before moving to The Awl and later to New York Magazine's The Cut. In this book, Havrilesky has assembled her classic letters and answers, along with new ones, to showcase her meandering and irreverent takes on life's travails. From seemingly petty questions of etiquette to deep existential struggles, How to Be a Person in the World approaches the messy business of life with humor, passion, and genuine insight.
