Carolyn Ferrell and Gina Sorell’s very different books both feature advice columnists. In Ferrell’s book Miss Metropolitan, three young women are abducted and held captive of three young in Queens, N.Y., across the street from an advice columnist. When they subsequently escaped, she wonders how she did not realize the girls were there.
Sorell’s book, The Wise Women tells of New York City’s gentrifying outer boroughs and an advice columnist who tries to help her two grown daughters who have their own problems and challenges.
