Synopsis: "[Approaching Eye Level is] about the day-to-day struggle to face down the brutality of growing loneliness, to accept the limitations of friendship and intimacy, to honor the process of becoming oneself. . . . Vivian Gornick's strength lies in her refusal to give up." -Mary Hawthorne, The New York Times

Review: In this collection of essays, Vivian Gornick describes battling the unique loneliness that only living alone in a big city can bring. Drawing upon her experience of living on her own in New York after a failed marriage, Gornick characterizes the city's loneliness as, "hot with shame, a loneliness that tells you you're a fool and a loser. Everyone else is feasting, you alone cannot gain a seat at the table." In the essay, "On Living Alone," she writes, "This is a population in a permanent state of intermittent attachment. Inevitably, the silent apartment waits." Recommended reading for anyone who still glamorizes single, metropolitan living.
