Party of One
Party of One: The Loners' Manifesto | Anneli S. Rufus
A celebration of the "loner" reassesses the cultural revulsion heaped on this type--a group with members as diverse as Rene Descartes, Emily Dickinson, and Greta Garbo--and re-evaluates their role in society. Original.

The introvert in me is struggling...a good friend is having a birthday party and I have to go be social when I just want to be home with my girls and read and watch freaky Friday....I hate peopling

Rufus has an axe to grind against forced socialization and the characterization of serial killers and crazed gunmen as “loners.” Those people are, she argues, outcasts who seek social validation but do not find it. Loners are people who seek out time alone, often creative types. Some good, smart ideas here, unfortunately couched in angry writing, an “us vs. them” mentality that does a disservice to celebrating those who prefer time alone.

batsy It does sound intriguing, too bad about the tone of the writing. 2y
Thndrstd The tone is distracting but there are good things in it 2y

Thank you so much for let me participate in #LitsyPartyOfOne @Ambrosnazzy It was spectacular even when I could read only few hours during the weekend. It was a pleasure to read all of your comments. It was like you were here with me! Love to see the place you chose to read:home, pool, patio..., what you were going to eat, what books you were going to read, like friends in a distance! Ready for the next one! 📚☕️📖🤓📚🍿🍫🍦📚😍

I've got a meeting with my caseworker tomorrow, discussing this late night heavy dish washing situation; whether a taxi can be covered, or if phone calls for changes need to be made. - I'll be going with my raggedy elf socks, doubled-over with the ever-so-professional black. Since worn winters back, the high bands shouldn't be as uncomfortable. 😉 I'll be back home for tomorrow's afternoon partying. 🎉 #litsypartyofone hosted by @Ambrosnazzy

This book was really great. Should be read by all loners. It is a nice validation that you aren't a terrible person. Was a really good look at loners in all aspect of life.
