Prudence is joined by Olga Kreimer, a journalist and grad student who writes an aggressively earnest advice column at the Los Angeles Review of Books. First up: Will it be awkward if I don’t mention my husband in the acknowledgment of my first book since he was super unsupportive of my writing process?

And lastly, my in-laws make wild accusations about folks in their hometown where I now live. What can I say—especially if some of them are true?
