Rezension

At this pivotal historical moment, when so many of us are struggling with burnout, anxiety about the future, and a gnawing dissatisfaction that things don t have to be like this, in strides Jenny Odell with the exact book that we needed. Odell masterfully dissects the origins of our many destructive beliefs around work, leisure, and self-improvement, while also offering a way for us to be free of them. Saving Time is an expose of our past, an antidote to our present, and a manifesto for the future. It is rigorous, compassionate, profound, and hopeful. It is one of the most important books I ve read in my life. Ed Yong, author of An Immense World

I experience Jenny Odell s work as the rarest kind of intervention: It alters you immediately, and then it lasts. She is alive to the bleakest aspects of contemporary existence the brute-force instrumentalization of our time, our planet, our humanity and yet finds a way to transubstantiate grief into vision . . . Saving Time is an inimitable gift. Jia Tolentino, author of Trick Mirror

Odell has gifted us a way to move through this intertidal moment by reclaiming our more intuitive, felt experience of the passage of time. She puts words to our shared disorientation and models a way to navigate a present dominated by its uncertain future. It s a beautiful, clarifying, and surprisingly reassuring literary triumph. Douglas Rushkoff, author of Present Shock

Saving Time is about what it means to be on the clock, personally, politically, and existentially. Odell s writing glows. Reading this book is like being in the company of a particularly thoughtful friend: Odell shows you the truths of the structures you inhabit and then, warmly, attempts to protect you from your own nihilism. Alissa Quart, author of Bootstrapped

This important book is a revealing exploration of the forces that keep us locked in a shallow, commodified, and adversarial relationship with time. But it is also a portal to a far richer alternative. To read it is to slip through the bars of our modern temporal prison and experience how freedom might feel. Oliver Burkeman, author of Four Thousand Weeks: Time Management for Mortals
 
This fiercely generous new book by Jenny Odell invites us to exit the superhighways and explore the scenic detours, byways, rebel camps, the other visions of who we can be while reminding us that slowness can yield more than speed. Rebecca Solnit, author of Men Explain Things to Me and A Field Guide to Getting Lost

Odell follows up How to Do Nothing with an electric call to reject the quantitative view of time in favor of a more expansive, less linear understanding that fosters interpersonal connection and social and ecological justice. . . . This is a moving and provocative game changer. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
