In 1950, only 22% of adults were single. Today, more than 50% of adults are. Eric Klinenberg explores the dramatic rise of solo living, and the seismic impact it's having on our culture, business and politics. Though conventional wisdom tells us that living by oneself leads to loneliness and isolation, most 'solo dwellers', compared with their married counterparts, are more likely to eat out and exercise, sign up for art and music classes, attend public events and lectures, and volunteer. Drawing on over three hundred in-depth interviews with men and women of all ages and every class, Klinenberg reaches some startling conclusions. With eye-opening statistics, original data and vivid portraits of people who go it alone, Going Solo upends common preconceptions to provide the definitive take on the rise of this major trend and how it is transforming modern society.

In Going Solo, the world's favourite storyteller, Roald Dahl, tells of life as a fighter pilot in Africa. 'They did not think for one moment that they would find anything but a burnt-out fuselage and a charred skeleton, and they were astounded when they came upon my still-breathing body lying in the sand nearby.' In 1938 Roald Dahl was fresh out of school and bound for his first job in Africa, hoping to find adventure far from home. However, he got far more excitement than he bargained for when the outbreak of the Second World War led him to join the RAF. His account of his experiences in Africa, crashing a plane in the Western Desert, rescue and recovery from his horrific injuries in Alexandria, flying a Hurricane as Greece fell to the Germans, and many other daring deeds, recreates a world as bizarre and unnerving as any he wrote about in his fiction. 'Very nearly as grotesque as his fiction. The same compulsive blend of wide-eyed innocence and fascination with danger and horror' Evening Standard 'A non-stop demonstration of expert raconteurship' The New York Times Book Review Roald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults. These delightfully disturbing tales have often been filmed and were most recently the inspiration for the West End play, Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson. Roald Dahl's stories continue to make readers shiver today.

He remembers what it was like taste-testing chocolate for Cadbury's and he even reveals how his nose was nearly sliced off. Then in GOING SOLO you'll read stories of whizzing through the air in a Tiger Moth Plane, encounters with hungry lions, and the terrible crash that led him to storytelling. Roald Dahl tells his story in his own words - and it's all TRUE. And now you can listen to all of Roald Dahl's novels for children on Roald Dahl Audiobooks read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - plus there are added squelchy soundeffects from Pinewood Studios!

Author and scientist Detlev is someone who has broken free from the shackles of German tradition. One day, he grabbed his kayak and simply paddled off into the sunset: to the Arctic Circle, to be precise, leaving his old life behind. The original idea of the kayaking expedition was to do the entire Baltic Sea and live solely off the fat of the land like a ‘budding Viking’ – pure minimalism. He dubbed the project Shin-ken Sho-bu as a nod to his time in Japan: “Doing things with deadly seriousness”, which, as it turned out, couldn’t have been more apt: halfway through the trip, a cross-eyed motorboat captain ended up crushing him against the wall in a Swedish lock. The resulting bone splinters and cervical spine syndrome kept him side-lined for a year before he could eventually resume the expedition. Detlev had to rethink his original plan. After all, dreams meet reality out at sea and there is an adventure lurking around every corner! Loneliness, hunger, self-doubt and the monotony of paddling were his constant companions on the ninety-one-day voyage, not to mention the pain of sitting for hours on end, the torments of the unpredictable Baltic Sea, the icy Northern European weather and his frequent lack of energy, even for the cosy nightly campfire. Especially in our fast-moving, jaded times, Detlev’s ironic, self-critical and frank account and the descriptions of his bare-knuckle experiences make for a riveting read – not only for paddlers but also anyone who is fed up with life and the daily grind, still has dreams and might like to see them materialise one day. Detlev has been on a number of unusual expeditions since and coined his ‘RoNindoc’ philosophy: ‘Life is short, one day it’s gone!’ www.detlev-henschel.com
