Waiting on Wednesday: Slow Love

April 21, 2010

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week’s pre-publication can’t wait to read selection is:

Slow Love: How I Lost My Job, Put on my Pajamas, & Found Happiness by Dominique Browning

Browning’s 13-year-job as editor-in-chief of House & Garden fulfillingly defined her days and her identity; when the magazine folded two years ago, she was shaken to the core of her being. Having maintained her Westchester house, family of two grown sons, extensive garden, and frequent dining out, her life and general sense of self was radically shaken over the next year, and in this enchanting, funny, deeply gracious memoir, Browning, many years divorced, recounts how she found enlightenment at the other end. Writing was one way to absorb the panic; she went on a muffin-baking binge and gained 15 pounds; lost track of days, remaining comfortingly in her pjs and yearning perilously to reconnect to a former lover she calls Stroller, who was deemed wrong for her by everyone she knew. A few small decisions had enormous impact, such as when insomnia compelled her to tackle Bach’s Goldberg Variations on the piano, and poignantly she refocused on her artistic nature.
This title will be released on May 9, 2010.
