Champagne for One
A Celebration of Solitude

Simon says, raise your hand if you're a single lady.
Single or not, most women could use a little more solitude than the world typically offers. Like many, Rebekah Iliff has spent ample time pondering her need for it, how much to ask for, and wondering why the world paints it in such a negative light. After the sudden loss of a close friend, she decided to go forward with their birthday spa day alone, and found herself drinking a glass of champagne solo in a spa, much to fellow patrons' concern. This experience later sparked the poem "Champagne for One," a joyful reflection on intentional solitude, and bubbled into this namesake collection of poetry and essays.
With sharp wit and sly satire, Iliff paints a picture of complete personal content, where you will finally see yourself embracing the value of solitary life and laughing along the way. Discover an array of conversation enders and a recipe for stag stew—the secret ingredient? 4 ounces of confidence—that will leave you equipped to take on even the most clingy companions and matchmaking expectations.
Champagne for One is a delightful spotlight on how to own being alone, perfect as a gift to a friend or as a treat to your solitary self.
