Eric Klinenberg, NYU sociologist and author of the new book Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone, discusses why more people live alone and why they’re more likely to be more social than others. Plus: New Yorker staff writer, Jane Mayer, discusses her article about who’s behind the pro-Romney Super PAC Restore Our Future; Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer talks about the state of the borough and his ideas about tax policy; and a conversation about the new Model Alliance to fight for the rights of fashion models.
