Product Details


“A blend of memoir and reportage, The Lonely Hunter will convince you that our ‘search for love is broken,’ whether you’re single or not.”—Vogue

“An insightful and thorough investigation into one woman’s loneliness and the systemic ways we’re all becoming less connected . . . It might seem like a depressing topic, but I laughed so hard and learned so much.”—Blythe Roberson, author of How to Date Men When You Hate Men

“In unflinching, honest prose that deftly weaves sociological and cultural analysis with her personal journey, The Lonely Hunter challenged everything I assumed about the nature of loneliness and what it means to lead an authentic life . . . A deeply relatable story that will resonate with readers, lonely or not.”—Doree Shafrir, author of Thanks for Waiting and Startup

“Wry, smart, full of bittersweet detail and vivid scenes, The Lonely Hunter is engaging without giving in to easy answers and is willing to ask the big questions—what makes a good life, and what do we want from each other?”—Rosalie Knecht, author of the Vera Kelly novels

“At once heartbreaking and deeply funny, Lutkin’s The Lonely Hunter captures the essence of seemingly endless singlehood in a world built for couples. As vulnerable as she is illuminative, Lutkin achieves what so many of us singles are looking for—she makes us feel less alone.”—Rebecca Fishbein, author of Good Things Happen to People You Hate

“I’m not sure how one could read The Lonely Hunter and NOT fall in love with Aimée Lutkin! Her memoir is at once a tender, vivacious consideration of modern romance and an incisive cultural study of American loneliness—a great and heartwarming achievement.”—Rachel Vorona Cote, author of Too Much

“A brilliant reframing of the cultural narrative around singledom with an impassioned defense of its pleasures…With sparkling intellect and wit, Lutkin argues that being single can be just as life-giving as companionship.”Publishers Weekly
