Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
A #1 bestseller in France, this modern masterpiece by the distinguished author of The Unbearable Lightness of Being presents a tremendously entertaining, wickedly funny satire on contemporary life. Simultaneously telling two stories, one set in the 18th century and one in the 20th century, Slowness ruminates upon how the pleasure inherent in a slower rhythm of life has disappeared in our technologically advanced era.
