'Whom to marry and when will it happen - these two questions define every woman's existence.'

So begins Spinster, a revelatory look at the pleasures, problems and possibilities of living independently in the 21st century, reconsidering what it means - what it could mean - for women to 'have it all'.

'I wish I could give this wise and subtle book to my thirty-year-old self; she would have taken heart . . . Bold and intelligent'
Rebecca Mead, author of My Life in Middlemarch

'A triumph' Malcolm Gladwell

'Women of the world listen here: drop whatever you're doing and read Kate Bolick's marvelous meditation on what it means to be female at the dawn of the 21st century' Joanna Rakoff, author of My Salinger Year

MEDIA REVIEWS
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 *
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 *
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 *
