Lonely : learning to live with solitude / Emily White.
- White, Emily, 1980-
About this work
Despite having a demanding job, good friends, and a supportive family, Emily White spent many of her evenings and weekends alone at home, trying to understand why she felt so completely disconnected from everyone. In this insightful and soul-baring memoir, White recounts her struggle to comprehend and overcome her chronic loneliness, a debilitating condition that she contends deserves the same attention as depression and other mental difficulties. Interweaving her personal story with cutting-edge scientific research--as well as moving accounts offered by numerous lonely men and women--White provides a deep and thorough portrait of this increasingly common but too often ignored affliction.--From publisher description.
