Whether you view living alone as the ultimate compromise or the ultimate luxury, it presents daily challenges, such as cooking for one, organising holidays, juggling finances, and avoiding the siren call of wine, Ugg boots and Netflix. And there are the less tangible tests, like nailing the octopus of loneliness to the wall, and holding your head high in a society where solo living is viewed (consciously or not) as the runner-up prize. Author Jane Mathews believes that to be truly content living alone, it pays to examine every aspect of your life-relationships, health, home, finances, interests and spirituality-and then take action. No matter what your unique situation, there's something here for you. Jane provides the map and you choose the route to a more joyful, contented life.

According to the U. S. Census Bureau, over thirty million Americans live alone. A third of them are young people less than age forty-five, who have not yet married, or for other reasons, involuntarily or voluntarily, live alone. The rest, some 20 million (a number which keeps growing as our population lives longer) are people over forty-five. Living Alone And Loving It was written to help those who have lived all or most of their lives with another person and, because of the death of a companion, are now faced with the often difficult prospect of living alone. The philosophical and practical suggestions were compiled from the author’s own experiences and interviews with men and women who have lived alone, some for only a short time, and others for years. Although the ideas contained in Living Alone And Loving It are intended for older individuals, young people who live alone and are responsible for all of life’s intricacies without the help, suggestions, or hindrances of another may also benefit.

"Whether you view your one-woman ménage as Doom or Adventure, you need a plan, if you are going to make the best of it." Thus begins Marjorie Hillis' archly funny, gently prescriptive manifesto for single women. Though it was 1936 when the Vogue editor first shared her wisdom with her fellow singletons, the tome has been passed lovingly through the generations, and is even more apt today than when it was first published. Hillis, a true bon vivant, was sick and tired of hearing single women carping about their living arrangements and lonely lives; this book is her invaluable wake-up call for single women to take control and enjoy their circumstances. Hillis takes readers through the fundamentals of living alone, including the importance of creating a hospitable environment at home, cultivating hobbies that keep her there ("for no woman can accept an invitation every night without coming to grief"), the question of whether single ladies may entertain men at home (the answer may surprise you!), and many more. With engaging chapter titles like "A Lady and Her Liquor" and "The Pleasures of a Single Bed," along with a new preface by author Laurie Graff (You Have to Kiss A Lot of Frogs), LIVE ALONE AND LIKE IT is sure to appeal to live-aloners and many other readers alike.
