Readers of Rebecca Traister’s All the Single Ladies who had never read any other books about single people would come away with no sense that Singled Out was an important intellectual predecessor of Traister’s book.
I haven’t posted an update in a while, so making up for all that elapsed time, here is more than you ever wanted to know about what I’m up to now and what I’m planning to do next.
There are 7 sections:
- The latest on How We Live Now
- New Collection – Marriage vs. Single Life: How Science and the Media Got It So Wrong – and a Stand-Alone Chapter from It
- Kindle Countdown Deals on Amazon
- More Translations of More of My Books
- Coming Soon: Courses on Udemy
- My Next Collection: Family in the Lives of Single People
- The Next Book of Original Research and Writing
The amazing Karen Reed made the very first Singles Day happen, and it was a big success! You can read about it here and here. In this post, I just wanted to share a few more of the images of the day.
Often, what seems like an obviously smart practice to people in business, feels like discrimination to people who are single. I have discussed this dilemma often, starting in Singled Out and continuing in various articles and blog posts.
This is a true story: When I was named valedictorian of my Dunmore High School class of 1971, my gift from the high school was a year’s subscription to Reader’s Digest.
Maybe I should have continued to read it. In June of 2012, the magazine chose “singlism” and “matrimania” as their Words of the Month. Check out the box in the lower right-hand side of the image. (Sorry it is not very clear.)
Whether hosted by Dylan Ratigan or guest-hosted by Matt Miller, the Dylan Ratigan Show has been a hotbed for matrimania. Not long ago, Toure voiced such a syrupy, clichéd ode to marriage that I launched into a two-part rant about it (here and here).
