Cancelled: How To Be Alone

How To Be Alone

Comedian Lane Moore, who is best known as the creator of Tinder Live, front woman in It Was Romance (who is also playing SXSW TK date), and as a scene-stealing actor on shows like HBO's GIRLS, discusses her bestselling book How To Be Alone: If You Want to and Even If You Don’t. The book touches on raising herself, not having the family you're "supposed" to have, and how your childhood impacts all of your adult relationships, all with humor as her bolstering force and greatest gift. How To Be Alone has been named one of the “Best Books Of 2018” by Marie Claire, AutoStraddle, and New York Magazine, who called it one of the “10 Best Comedy Books Of 2018”. NPR's Scott Simon called the book, “One woman’s wry, wise, sometimes funny and often melancholy reminder that friends can be demanding and complicating, love is imperfect and obligating, and you can’t count on a hard-charging cavalry of people who were just right for you to come riding over the hill and sweep you away.”
