“In burnished, exquisite prose, Browning describes her feelings of being set adrift until she gradually transforms her helter-skelter days into a deliberate, contemplative way of life. … There’s a lovely ‘thinking out loud’ quality to Slow Love that makes the reader privy to Browning’s soul.” (Judy Bolton-Fasman - The Boston Globe)
“Starred Review. There is such feeling and care on each page of Browning's well-honed memoir—her rediscovery of nature, her avowal to let love find her rather than seek it, tapping satisfying work at her own keyboard—that the reader is swept along in a pleasant mood of transcendence.” (Publishers Weekly)
“Not only an elegant and meditative writer but a pungently witty one ... Triumphantly, [Browning] makes the case for slow love achieved, a process she describes as the flip side of nostalgia: the state of 'knowing what you’ve got before it’s gone.'” (Miranda Seymour - The New York Times Book Review)
“There cannot be a person on earth who does not sometimes wonder what the purpose of their life is. Dominique Browning was lucky enough to get fired, so she had time to find out who she was or might be. And we are lucky that she was able to write (often with great humor) about her loss, her loves, her pajamas and ultimately, her return to life.” (Maira Kalman, author and illustrator of The Principles of Uncertainty)
