Amy Sohn Has Some Advice for Forward Readers

Writer Amy Sohn will be the Forward’s next guest Bintel Brief advice columnist, answering readers’ questions during the month of October.

Sohn is the author of, most recently, “Prospect Park West” (Simon & Schuster) — a novel about living, loving, hating and procreating in the leafy Brooklyn neighborhood of Park Slope. She is also the author of the novels “Run Catch Kiss” (Simon & Schuster, 1999) and “My Old Man,” (Simon & Schuster, 2004), and of two bestselling “Sex and the City” tie-in books. In addition, she co-created, wrote and starred in the Oxygen series “Avenue Amy.”

She is a former contributing editor and columnist at New York magazine, and has also been a columnist at the New York Post and England’s Grazia magazine. She got her start writing “Female Trouble,” a racy New York Press dating column that, she said, “elicited loads of invective from readers and shamed her parents at cocktail parties.”

A graduate of Brown University, Sohn lives in Brooklyn with her husband and daughter.
