Is It Possible to Live Slowly in the World’s Fastest City?

Is It Possible to Live Slowly in the World’s Fastest City?

This is the question author William Powers poses in his memoir New Slow City.

After living in a 12 x 12 home in North Carolina for an entire year, Powers finds himself overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of New York City. His resolve? To see if he’s able to live a life worth living amongst the chaos. Between cutting back his work week to two days a week and moving himself and his new wife into a micro-sized studio apartment, Powers records not only how his own thought process changes over the course of a year, but also how the his lifestyle also affects his career.

Focusing on the idea of “slow living,” self-sustainability, and absorbing what’s happening around oneself, New Slow City is a memoir that is so well-written you won’t even realize you’re learning along the way.
