Hobo Radio Interview – Lane Moore, How to Be Alone: If You Want To, and Even If You Don’t

Subscribe:


There’s a contradiction at the core of Lane Moore’s new memoir, How to Be Alone: If You Want To, and Even If You Don’t. The book bills itself as a guide to navigating solitude. However, Moore’s heartfelt, intimate writing places you so deeply into her world that you feel profoundly connected to her. Her musings on solitude feel like a conversation you’re having over drinks with a dear friend, which inevitably makes you feel less alone in the world.

We recently talked to Moore about the process of writing the book, how she’s been coping emotionally with some of the heavier subject matter and her plans to write a Will Smith-esque theme song for the inevitable film adaptation.

Hobo Radio Interview – Lane Moore

Lane Moore is a comedian, writer, actor, musician … and one of the most delightful people on the planet. While she has been hard at work writing her first book, How To Be Alone, she somehow still finds the time to produce and host her critically-acclaimed comedy show Tinder Live! With Lane Moore.

While we’ll all have to impatiently wait until November to read the book, we chatted with Lane about what makes Tinder Live such a special show. We also pressed her for an update on “Laundry Guy,” the cute boy from her building she met in the most adorable way (a saga she turned into a viral Twitter thread).
