A Sideways Look at Time by Jay Griffiths

A wonderful, delightfully humorous polemic against everything wrong with the way we deal with time today. (The Independent[London], Books of the Year) An irresistibly provocative and political analysis of time in our personal lives.... Her wittily enthusiastic thesis is that time has too long been used as a tool to power: as a manifesto it could cause a revolution. (The Times[London], Books of the Year) A Sideways Look at Timedoes for time what Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenancedid for philosophy... With this book Griffiths may just have beaten the clock. Passionately written and cogently argued, its a book you should make time to read. (Time Out London) Why does time seem so short? How does womens time differ from mens? Why does time seem to move slowly in the countryside and quickly in cities? In A Sideways Look at Time, Jay Griffiths takes readers on a mind-bending tour of time as we know it. In this delightfully eye-opening book that poet Gary Snyder calls an exercise indeed in Dharma, poetry, and philosophy, Griffiths reintroduces us to dimensions of time that are largely forgotten today. She presents an infectious argument for other, more extraordinary times, the diverse cycles of nature, of folktale or of carnival, when time is unlimited and on our side. This book could change the way we view time-forever.
