Selected Works

Scraping by in the Big Eighties
"The charmingly personal becomes the mightily political in a muscular, well-wrought series of essays that move chronologically through an appalling decade of public and private self-indulgence.... Singer has certainly done her homework for this entertaining refresher course on the decade of big hair and small mercies: the acknowledgements alone offer an excellent bibliography of an era that many readers who lived through it would rather forget."
--Kirkus Reviews

Living North Country: Essays on Life and Landscapes in Northern New York

Over two dozen essays from established writers as well as newcomers on the relationship between landscape and the ways of life in New York's "North Country"--the Adirondacks and surrounding valleys. Between these covers are open spaces, small towns, skeletons in the closets, blue skies, big storms and more.

Jules and Jonah March on Washington

Two young activists attend their first peace rally and learn firsthand about dissent and democracy.
