Description


In a boldly honest and elegantly written memoir--the first on this topic--Emily White reveals the painful and sometimes debilitating experience of living with chronic loneliness. In the vein of popular favorites such as Girl, Interrupted and Manic, Lonely approaches loneliness in the way that Andrew Soloman's The Noonday Demon approached depression, and lifts the veil on a mostly ignored population who often suffer their disorder in silence.

Praise For…


“Kudos to Emily White for having written that rare book which feels both necessary and evolutionary. Lonely is a masterwork on the topic, a memoir of deep insight and revelation.”
-Alice Sebold

“[A] sophisticated inquiry...The power of White’s story comes from the sweeping investment she has made in tracking and tackling her loneliness. White makes the case that loneliness deserves attention and respect as a legitimate condition.”
-Kirkus Reviews

“[A]n impassioned call to arms on behalf of a condition no one wants to talk about.”
-Jezebel.com
