An Advice Writer in a Shifting World

From a Times Insider column by Katherine J. Igoe headlined “Even Before Social Q’s, Philip Galanes Liked Giving Advice”:

In Social Q’s, a New York Times advice column for interpersonal quandaries, the writer and lawyer Philip Galanes helps readers navigate tricky and awkward social challenges. No problem is too messy or mundane: Since starting the column in 2008, Mr. Galanes has advised a big sister concerned about a bullied sibling, a generous host dealing with ungrateful houseguests and even an unfaithful spouse desperate to win back his partner.
