Slate: Meet Our New Dear Prudence Columnist: After a glorious decade, Emily Yoffe is passing the advice-giving pen to Mallory Ortberg.
I’m thrilled to announce that Mallory Ortberg will assume the Prudie mantle beginning next Monday. Mallory's website, The Toast, is one you should be reading if you don’t already because it’s home to some of the smartest, sliest writing on the Internet, whether the subject is the (17) tropes of Southern gothic literature, the most adorable dogs in the history of Western art, or how Internet commenters talk about bras. (Her work at the Toast will continue even as she takes on this new role.) Mallory is one of the most distinctive and exciting writers working today: wise, big-hearted, and devilishly funny. She is also a devoted Prudie fan, and a close student of the column. I can’t wait to see where she takes it next.Ortberg herself provides a short FAQ on the decision: I Am Dear Prudence Now Also In Addition To The Toast
