About this book:
What effect does being an only child have on a lifetime? Is being an only child a defining part of being an ‘only adult’?
Based on his own experience, John Killick has put together a book that explores in a unique way what it means to grow up as an only child. In short, journal-like entries he has collected personal stories, dreams and memories filled with poetic insight that depict ‘onlyness’ from his early youth to adulthood. Everything is held together by objective introductions to the individual chapters and a detailed scientific overview. Onlyness is a book which suggests much in its short span.
