There were already accounts--too many of them--of people isolated and lonely around the country. And then came the COVID-19 shutdown, confining or at least encouraging people to stay home, whether they had company there or not.

J.W. "Terry" Freiberg, psychologist and lawyer, is concerned about lonely people. Concerned enough to write a few books on the subject matter, the latest of which is Surrounded by Others and Yet So Alone: A Lawyer’s Case Stories of Love, Loneliness, and Litigation.

The book presents true stories of how connections fray and relationships fail. The author joins us to outline what he's seen.
