The Bob Edwards Show, George Howe Colt, January 17, 2013 | [Bob Edwards]

The Bob Edwards Show, George Howe Colt, January 17, 2013

George Howe Colt explores the complexity of fraternity in his new book Brothers. The book is part memoir – Colt grew up in a family of four brothers -- and part history of iconic brothers—the Booths, the Van Goghs, the Kelloggs, the Thoreaus and the Marx Brothers. Then, humans have a natural desire to live with others, not alone. But Eric Klinenberg argues that during the past half century, our species has embarked upon a remarkable social experiment. For the first time in all of human history, vast numbers of people are living alone. In 1950, only 22 percent of Americans were single. Today, more than 50 percent are and about 1 out of every 7 adults live alone. Klinenberg explores what this means for our society in his book Going Solo, which comes out in paperback on January 29.
