The “The Lease You Could Do” Edition

My tenant refuses to move out of my rental house. Help!

Episode Notes

This week’s mini-episode finds Prudence visited by Sarah Jaffe, the author of Work Won’t Love You Back and Necessary Trouble, both from Bold Type Books. She’s also the co-host, with Michelle Chen, of Dissent magazine’s Belabored podcast.

Prudie and Jaffe discuss a letter from a landlord whose tenant won’t move out, and another letter writer who’s wondering what to do about a friend who inexplicably stopped contact.
