Saving Time: Discovering a Life Beyond Productivity Culture | Jenny Odell
416 pages | Random House | 1.2.24
We are living on the wrong clock, and it is destroying us. The author of How to Do Nothing offers us different ways to experience time in this dazzling, subversive, and deeply hopeful book.
Why does our time conform to a corporate timetable? In this “hopeful and subversive cultural history” (Esquire), Jenny Odell explains how time became money and urges us to become stewards of different rhythms of life--shortening and lengthening days, gardens growing, birds migrating, cliffs eroding, the time it takes to heal from an injury, the stretchy quality of waiting and desire--in which time is not reducible to standardized units and instead forms the very medium of possibility.
