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.

About the Author
Reading Group Guide
In 2007, House & Garden editor Dominique Browning became a casualty of the sudden dissolution of her magazine and she found herself out of a job she spent nearly thirteen years establishing. Violently divorced from her intense, high-pressure career, she soon struggled with a life promising nothing to do and little solace for what the future held.
Browning learns how challenging and rewarding it can be to decelerate one's life and discover what truly matters. Through this personal and touching memoir, Browning faces her life head on and reveals the hidden happiness and wisdom that can be found in the simpler facets of life.
Slow Love is a book about redefining oneself, about righting one's path after being knocked off course and learning that the journey may be just as important as the getting there.
