Today on Your Call: Why are so many people choosing to live on their own?

On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Eric Klinenberg, author of "Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone."

“Afternoon of a Faun” was choreographed by then-23-year-old Vaslav Nijinsky for the Ballet Russes.
