"Is living alone a lonely life? Sometimes. But it can also prove to he wonderfully unpredictable, offering freedom and independence in a way that nothing else can. Author Barbara Holland knows what it means to live alone in a world full of complexities and demands; she has lived alone for years. In One's Company, she confronts the reality at the core of solitary living, with honesty and courage." "In this heartening volume dedicated to fellow "solitaries," Holland shares her no-nonsense way of thinking. She reminds us that living alone isn't always easy, but it's a situation that can be mastered and even, at times, enjoyed. With grace and good humor, Ms. Holland shares the thoughts that delight and the things that disturb, and offers a philosophy that anyone who lives alone will savor." "Holland's advice also makes One's Company a unique guide to the practical side of living alone. Included are life lessons that it's never too late to learn, such as how to install a door lock or figure a tip. And there are comforting words on taking care of yourself when you're sick or simply hungry that will banish helplessness from your vocabulary and your life."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
