ABOUT THE STILL SINGLE PAPERS
In June 2009 Alison started writing an anonymous blog, Lovefool Forever, about her experiences of being single, mainly because so much of it was so galling that she needed to write it down. This became The Still Single Papers - a funny, self-deprecating look at dating in the second decade of the 21st century. A journal-style book covering 12 months in the life of one incurable romantic, it is a modern take on the straightjacket that is 'still single,' firmly rejecting the accepted wisdoms and rules.
