Live Alone And Like It – Marjorie Hillis
This 1936 bestseller created a phenomenon – it sold over 100,000 copies in the first two months of its release. Who can resist a book with chapters such as ‘A Lady and Her Liquor’, ‘Pleasures of a Single Bed’ and ‘Solitary Refinement’?
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.
‘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.’
With beautiful, stylish line drawings by a Vogue illustrator.
