Book recommendations please: fiction and non-fiction [including (auto)biographies] of people who lived alone, and their experiences and thoughts about it.

Not so much cool warrior/spy/athletic/mountain conquering superhuman dude/tte who just happens to be alone as s/he conquers the universe, but (ordinary-ish, probably geographically stationary) people who found it a challenge (even lonely), and reflected it on it.
Bonus points for ascetic lifestyles, including monks/nuns but without too much god stuff (as I can't relate to that).
