Born in the states, but working in Europe most of her life, Irma Kurtz has spent 40 years ministering to other people, inciting outcry – and the occasional death threat – along the way.

She is a journalist and writer – the author of two novels, three travel books, three self-help manuals – but it is for her column in Cosmopolitan that she is best known.
