THE BESTSELLING NOVEL WHICH CREATED A WORLDWIDE PHENOMENON

‘A perfect bedside companion for the post-Bridget Jones generation’ DAILY TELEGRAPH (CANADA)

‘Hillis’s book gave rise to “Live Alone” accessories, including cocktail shakers, china dogs and negligees’ WALL STREET JOURNAL

‘She was boldly leading a vanguard of young women into a self-reliant, judgment-free future’ NATIONAL

This 1936 bestseller sold over 100,000 copies in the first two months of its release. Marjorie Hillis, a 1930s Vogue editor, provides a stylish, no-nonsense guide to living and loving single life. Written with wisdom, humour and panache, this is advice that will never go out of fashion. She takes women through the fundamentals of living alone by showing them how to create a welcoming environment and cultivate home-friendly hobbies, ‘for no woman can accept an invitation every night without coming to grief’.

Chances are that at sometime in your life, possibly only now and then between husbands, you will find yourself settling down to a solitary existence. You may do it from choice. Lots of people do … Whether you view your one-woman menage as Doom or Adventure (and whether you are twenty-six or sixty-six), you need a plan’

Who can resist a book with chapters such as ‘A Lady and Her Liquor’, ‘Pleasures of a Single Bed’ and ‘Solitary Refinement’? Live Alone and Like It is sure to appeal to ‘live-aloners’ and those considering taking the plunge.

With beautiful and stylish line drawings by a Vogue illustrator.
