In his new book entitled Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone, Klinenberg challenges conventional wisdom by examining the lives of healthy and happy single dwellers. With eye-opening statistics, original data, and vivid portraits of people who go solo, Klinenberg delivers the definitive take on how the rise of living alone is transforming the American experience.
Eric Klinenberg is Professor of Sociology, Public Policy, and Media, Culture, and Communications at New York University, and editor of the journal Public Culture. In addition to his most recent work, Klinenberg has also published Heat Wave: A Social Autopsy of Disaster in Chicago (2002) and Fighting for Air: The Battle to Control America’s Media (2007) to much acclaim. At NYU, Professor Klinenberg teaches courses on the sociology of cities, culture, and media, as well graduate seminars on research methods, ethnography, and urban design.
