"In burnished, exquisite prose, Browning describes her feelings
of being set adrift until she gradually transforms her helter-skelter
days into a deliberate, contemplative way of life." -The Boston
Globe

In late 2007, Dominique Browning, the editor-in-chief of Conde
Nast's House & Garden, was informed that the magazine had
folded-and she was out of a job. Suddenly divested of the income and
sense of purpose that had driven her for most of her adult life,
Browning panicked. But freed of the incessant pressure to multi-task
and perform, she unexpectedly discovered a more meaningful way to live.

Browning's witty and thoughtful memoir has already touched a chord
with reviewers and readers alike. While untold millions are feeling the
stress of modern life, Slow Love eloquently reminds us to
appreciate what we have-a timely message that we all need to hear.
