Description
Louise Bernikow discusses her book, “Alone in America.” She begins by explaining that she traveled around America asking people what loneliness meant to them. She talks about how work often takes over a person’s romantic life. She talks about reasons why more people are feeling alone because of the high divorce rate, longer life spans, and more women are choosing to work long hours. Bernikow gives advice for how to eat at a restaurant alone, and attend events, movies, and plays by oneself. She describes the loneliness of unemployment and how people feel inferior because they believe it is their fault. She ends the interview by talking about how divorced people transition from living with others to living alone.
