In his book Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone, NYU sociologist Eric Klinenberg describes Sasha as “something of a hero for the growing ranks of singletons who are learning to feel secure with their status, and she is often their public face. She appears frequently on popular national television and radio programs to explain that going solo is a viable, legitimate, and not necessarily lonely way to dwell in a city—a point that is surprisingly controversial given how many people are already living alone.”
Sasha talks about trends in being single, dating, relationships, marriage and self-marriage. She does a lot of interviews around February 14 (Valentine’s Day, AKA International Quirkyalone Day!).
She also speaks on feminism, women’s issues, female sexuality, to-do lists, work-life balance, and leading a meaningful life.
