When Sandra Tsing Loh visited the home of her recently divorced friend, she admired the “clutterless” cottage that looked like it could be on HGTV. But beyond the “snowy luxury-spa fantasy,” she began to wonder what it’s like to be middle-aged, single and living alone.

In her New York magazine piece “Does Living Alone Drive You Mad?” she explores the good and bad of being a single-person household. Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson speaks with Loh about her impressions of this growing population.
