Making A Life of One's OwnBook - 2015
By connecting the dots between single women past and present, Kate reveals the long arc of slowly changing attitudes toward women and marriage, and shows us why, even today, the choice to remain single is a source of considerable debate and societal handwringing. Intellectually substantial and deeply personal, it is the kind of slyly erudite, unreservedly candid work of memoir and broader cultural exploration that offers readers a way back into their own lives, a way of seeing those splendid years when we were young and unencumbered, or middle-aged and finally left to our own devices, for what they really are: open and free and our own to savor. The result is a spellbinding account that explores as no other book has the true meaning of a woman's freedom.
