About the Author

Kate Bolick is a contributing editor to the Atlantic. She was previously the executive editor of Domino magazine. She lives in New York.


Ms Bolick's is a personal story of the pleasures and challenges of being a woman at a time of changing rules and seemingly endless possibilities * Economist * This is a memoir about what it's like to be a single woman. It's revealing and sometimes sad. There's a heartbreaking part about the death of her mother in middle age, and the loss of everything that might have come later. It's very literary - steeped in female writers * Evening Standard * Bolick links her own experiences into the world of literature very well, whether it's Louisa May Alcott or Mary Oliver: 'Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?' * The Bookseller *
