The Still Single Papers is sassy, confident, and comically honest. Alison Taylor chronicles a 12-month period in the life of a serial dater who is looking for "something real". If you like listening to the outspoken, crude, and upbeat voices of artists like Lilly Allen and Kate Nash, you'll love this audiobook. Our heroine is independent and smart; she is also (at times) lonely. Her journal entries show the fun and extravagant side of dating, along with the more desolate side. We travel along with this edgy heroine, as she moves around the city in search of Mr. Right (or at least someone worth her time). Lucy Price-Lewis gives an evocative performance transporting the listener deep into the world of Singledom.
Still Single should be a marital status all of its own. Single girls today are smarter, stronger and funnier, and journalist Alison Taylor is the witty voice for this new generation who are looking for 'the one' but not willing to undergo a personality lobotomy in the process.
Covering twelve months in the life of one ever-hopeful (but never desperate) romantic, The Still Single Papers charts what happens before a date, during a date and when there are no dates. Hanging out at music festivals, bars and various capital cities, we join the self-styled 'lovefool' and friends on her quest for fun, romance and someone to care about. On her travels, Alison asks the tough questions, like: what does that text really mean? Did you shave that yourself? Are you f***ing kidding me?
The Still Single Papers will ring true with a whole generation of cool, educated and ambitious women who can't quite believe that there are so few fit, single straight guys out there. But that doesn't stop them from looking and hoping, and hoping and looking…
