Living Solo: Agony or Ecstasy?
ALONE AGAIN: naturally? unnaturally? inevitably? How homes embrace the singleton: No man is an island, but should homes be that for the happy free agent? Culture values coupledom, family-ization: but for some being true to yourself means being by yourself. 55% over women live alone, longer lives and rejecting both marriage and child rearing have made singles a growth demographic. Listen to Duo Dickinson and Binnie Klein explore the non-family household.
We explore this trend with 2 terrific guests: The New York Times Book Review calls author Kate Bolick’s memoir “Spinster: Making A Life of One’s Own” a book that “sets forth a clear vision not just for single women, but for all women…” and speaks as a single woman and editor at home design magazine Domino. Architect Curtis B. Wayne is also single and has been an architecture host of Heritage Network’s “BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE” radio show and has written “The Shape of Things that Work: The Fourth Architecture”.
