Description

The New York Times bestselling author of First, We Make the Beast Beautiful tackles the loneliness epidemic, encouraging readers to view solitude through a spiritual lens, and embrace the art of being alone. This is not just a book for single people, introverts, or the self-proclaimed lone wolf. You can be in a crowded room, or at a dinner table with your spouse and children, and still feel powerfully lonely and disengaged. Forty-six percent of Americans sometimes or always feel lonely, and loneliness is a public health hazard that rivals alcoholism, smoking, and obesity. Meanwhile, as our cultural sense of disconnection grows, our endless drive for “more” – more social media, more technology, overconsumption, workaholism – grows too. But what if we were to shut off our devices and simply sit with ourselves in what Wilson calls “radical aloneness?" Could this be the antidote to the profound sense of disconnection that we feel? In the voice-driven style that built a community around her last book, Wilson embarks on a personal and spiritual journey that is destined to become a movement.
