Single State of the Union: Single Women Speak Out on Life, Love, and the Pursuit of Happiness
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungAre single women happy individualists? Neurotic man-hunters? Crazed cat ladies? Are they confused, or content? Bitter, or better off?
No one seems to know. The popular media gives us shoe shopaholics, ditzy desperados, wannabe brides forever making cow eyes at "The Bachelor." But what do single women have to say about their own lives?
With sass, humor, and style, "Single State of the Union" paints a provocative, playful, and complex portrait of today's single woman, taking on such topics as:
o sex and the single girl
o single motherhood
o buying a house without a spouse
o faux boyfriends
o cohabitation hesitation
o single women in the media
Written by an impressive roster of single (and some formerly single) women, this collection portrays single women as individuals whose lives extend well beyond Match.com and Manolo Blahniks.
So listen up, Carrie. Attention, Bridget. It's time for the rest of us to be heard.
PressestimmenIn a world where everyone was in a rush to get the picket fence and 2.673 kids, I stood out a like an unmown, dandelion-riddled lawn with a rusted-out muscle car on cinderblocks smack dab in the middle. Because I've never gotten engaged or hitched within three weeks of meeting someone, friends called me immature, commitment-phobic, a late bloomer, a player, a childhood-divorce casualty, or sometimes "a total freaking guy." -- Michelle Goodman
