"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.

These linked stories of four lonely city dwellers by the New York Times–bestselling author of A Three Dog Life come together in this “gem” (The Village Voice). “A lonely hermit, a dead cobbler, a teenage runaway, and a 54-year-old virgin star in this . . . collection of poignant short stories set on New York’s Upper West Side. In concise, deft prose, Thomas interweaves tales of ordinary people coping with urban malaise. The first piece describes Walter, a sci-fi writer, pondering the value of his existence after his wife walks out. After Walter is cheered up by Mexican rooftop singers, the narrative shifts to his troubled neighbor, Edith. An overweight, sexually frustrated woman, Edith’s unusual antics include pocketing her dying mother’s jewelry and leaving flowers in the trash for a homeless woman. As Edith and Walter come to grips with their loneliness, the chaotic New York milieu is a vital force invigorating their lives. After a 14-year old runs away in search of her older sister in the penultimate story, the collection ends with an adulteress struggling to move her dead lover’s body, still clad in her husband’s pajamas. In portraying each of her four characters, Thomas captures the subtle details of city life with elegance, flair, wit, and comic timing.” —Boston Review “Thomas has a way with details that makes for endings as bittersweet as her beginnings.” —Publishers Weekly “An entertaining, cohesive, and well-written volume.” —Booklist
What he needed was a puppet that could be used as a substitute for his beloved woman. What she needed was a backer that she could rely on. He was domineering, arrogant, a devil, a king of both righteousness and evil. She was stubborn, proud, and beautiful, a seductive spirit. As the double became more and more important, as the facts began to distort, how would they develop? Is it mutual benefit? Was it a battle of mutual hatred? Or was it a fake act, with love as an exit, to escape the labyrinth of hatred?
He was the highest and most proud of men and she was the humblest of little maids he bullied her but also spoiled her so that millions of women are jealous of her she thought he loved her and when he conceived his child he waited for the coldest result
