Publisher Description

In a boldly honest and elegantly written memoir—the first on this topic—Emily White reveals the painful and sometimes debilitating experience of living with chronic loneliness. In the vein of popular favorites such as Girl, Interrupted and Manic, Lonely approaches loneliness in the way that Andrew Soloman’s The Noonday Demon approached depression, and lifts the veil on a mostly ignored population who often suffer their disorder in silence.

Great notions on loneliness!

Many people would never even consider their dwelling on loneliness, simply cause is not a subject anywhere, but academic literature. It is a more common state than many would admit to.
This book offers greats insights on the state of loneliness, which is rarely, if ever, talked about. Is not a self-help book, but it defintely helps you to understand the state, accept it and to live it without a sense of desperation. I think is very well written.
The blog by Emily White also offers more information about the subject. It is a good thing that the title is LONELY, cause it was the word that caught my attention at the bookstore, otherwise I would never even come up with such a concept. Thanks Emily, great work!
