The audiobook will be the second edition of Single in America by J.L. Barkas, considered a classic by a sociologist about the various types of singles - by choice, by divorce, by widowhood, living together (so not really "single" but considered single in the statistics). With the number of singles over 18 now at 102 million - this audiobook is much-needed and timeless.
In addition to a discussion of the singles explosion, and the above types of singles, the author also discusses the challenges of living single as well as the ideal of an interdependent romantic relationship, that is neither too dependent or too distant.
Includes an updated bibliography and resources. Based on extensive original research including contemporary interviews with male and female current and former singles, from young adults through the elderly.
