Description

"Eva Hoffman is as accomplished a memoirist and critic as virtually any contemporary American writer. . . . Her criticism and reviewing are characterized by a crystalline prose style and intimacy of thought, and they range over an astonishing spectrum." --The New York Times Book Review

"It is one of those books. . . that hits a newly discovered nerve and takes a few steps further towards civilizing the planet." --The Guardian on Lost in Translation

"A daring and generous book, measured in style, passionate in intent." --The Nation on Shtetl

"Hoffman examines this philosophically fraught subject in unpretentious, clear chapters: asking how time affects our bodies, our minds, our cultures, and, finally, how time has accelerated and changed with the advent of the concept of "immediacy"--or, as she puts it, "what pace and density of stimulus we need in order to feel that something 'interesting' is happening." --Benjamin Moser, Harper's

"Best known as a novelist and memoirist (Lost in Translation: A Life in a New Language), Hoffman deftly tackles this complex topic in a highly readable and entertaining way... This is a book for readers interested in exploring the world around them or hoping to see their surroundings in a new light. A fascinating and easy-to-read meditation on a deceptively simple concept." --Library Journal
