World Enough & Time, On Creativity and Slowing Down

World Enough & Time, On Creativity and Slowing Down

Review

WORLD ENOUGH & is, above all, simply one of the most beautiful books I have ever read. . . I read it far too quickly because I suffer from the very it illuminates so well, and I am one of those who warn against this Disease (hurry sickness) that is everywhere among us. I want to read this book again (and again) and slowly, savoring the remarkably moving writing -- Christian McEwen's prose is pure poetry; she has a poet's heart! And yet, it is not just her gift with words that makes this so powerful a book. Her stories ring true and put flesh on the solid social criticism and historical insights contained in the work. Her literary erudition shines through, but with an abiding humility. Most of all, this is a book that goes to the core of our current condition and asks us to reclaim our souls. Its message about Time could not be more Timely. This is not just a good book. This is a book that should become a classic. --John de Graaf, editor of TAKE BACK YOURTime and co-author of Affluenza: The All-Consuming Epidemic
If one can speak of an elegance of soul, this book reveals it. Furthermore, it is a work crafted over a long Time by an author who is also an uncommonly gifted reader, a vade mecum on a literary journey to a profound destination. --Jay Griffiths, author of A SIDEWAYS LOOK AT
