This may be the first generation that recognizes living alone as a legitimate choice rather than a declaration of defeat. People who live alone constitute approximately one-quarter of all North American households, and their numbers will continue to grow.Accomplished photographer Adrienne Salinger has put a face on this phenomenon. Her latest book, Living Solo, is a collection of vibrant photographs profiling 50 people who, like her, have chosen to fly solo. Each photograph is accompanied by excerpts from Adrienne's interview with these people, who candidly share their intimate views on a variety of topics: their homes, their work, their romantic lives, their families, past troubles or triumphs, and living alone itself.Living Solo captures the unusual, creative, mysterious, and idiosyncratic lifestyles of people who live by themselves. It introduces us to people and stories that we might never hear about accidentally or investigate intentionally and in so doing shows us the universal in the unique. Finally, we realize that this ever-growing segment within our society is as richly varied as our society as a whole.
