Author(s): Anna Sale

Mind & Body

Death. Sex. Money. Tricky subjects we're taught to avoid in polite conversation. But if they're so unpleasant, why do so many people tune in regularly to hear Anna Sale asking perfect strangers about them? What if, rather than declaring them off-limits, we could all benefit from discussing them more?Death. Sex. Money. Tricky subjects we're taught to avoid in polite conversation. But if they're so unpleasant, why do so many people tune in regularly to hear Anna Sale asking perfect strangers about them? What if, rather than declaring them off-limits, we could all benefit from discussing them more?In Let's Talk About Hard Things, Sale - the host of cult podcast Death, Sex & Money, which tackles life's hard questions - takes her quest for more honest communication into her own life. She considers her history of facing (and sometimes avoiding) difficult subjects, both personal and cultural; she reflects on race, wealth, inequality, love, grief, death, power - all the things that shape our daily lives, the things we should be talking about, but often struggle to. She tracks down people whose stories best illuminate the transformative power of tough conversations, and offers, with her trademark empathy and insight, different ways of approaching these tricky topics with family, friends, loved ones, and strangers alike.Part treatise, part how-to, and part memoir, Let's Talk About Hard Things is candid, unflinching, and entertaining in its quest to make everyone more comfortable with the uncomfortable realities of life. 'In Let's Talk About Hard Things, Anna Sale brings us fascinating conversations that feel both intensely personal and widely universal, then shows us how to start having them in our own lives. You will laugh, cry, nod in recognition, and by the end, feel like no topic is off limits when it comes to creating meaningful connection. I want to give a copy of this book to every family member, friend, and therapy patient I see.'-Lori Gottlieb, host of Dear Therapists podcast and New York Times bestselling author of Maybe You Should Talk To Someone 'With tremendous empathy and thoughtfulness, Anna Sale models how to have the hard conversations - about love and grief and fear and so much else. Sale is a wise guide through the most difficult human terrain, and with her help, I'm now having conversations that before this book felt impossible.' -John Green, New York Times bestselling author of Turtles All the Way Down and The Fault in Our Stars'Anna Sale has a real gift for cutting through the white noise that so often overwhelms our most urgent, high-stakes conversations. She's teaching us how to listen to one another again. No one can save us from life's plot twists - and no one should - but page by page, sentence by sentence, Sale is committed to seeing us through.' -Saeed Jones, author of How We Fight For Our Lives
