From the publisher: "This book is about people who live alone. It is a collection of intimate portraits of 50 people photographed in their homes. The photographs are accompanied by excerpts of the subjects' interviews with the author, in which they discuss a variety of topics: their homes, their work, their hobbies, their romantic lives, their families, past troubles or triumphs, and living alone itself. Historically, living alone has been seen as an aberration--a temporary detour on the road to finding a partner. More people are living alone than ever before, and this book reveals that this ever-growing segment of our society is as richly varied as our society as a whole."
