Cosmopolitan’s professional agony aunt for the last forty years, Irma Kurtz has had to deal with the most intimate problems of successive generations of readers, while having to keep up with the changing mores and attitudes in British and American society. Warm, funny and perceptive, brimming with wisdom and insight, My Life in Agony is a meditation on the subjects that tend to concern and confuse us the most – from mother-daughter relationships through to eating disorders, office politics and of course love and sex. “The unshockable queen of advice.” Cosmopolitan
In collaboration with The University of Sheffield Students’ Union as part of the week of celebrations for International Women’s Day.
