Session 234: Lonely: Learning to Live with Solitude
For this session, Melanie Gruetter has selected excerpts from the book Lonely: Learning to Live with Solitude by Emily White (Harper Perennial, 2011)
THIS SESSION WILL BE HELD IN ENGLISH.
“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 incredibly 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.” -Back Cover
