Description:

Novelist, cultural commentator, memoirist, and historian Eva Hoffman examines our ever-changing perception of time in this inspired addition to the BIG IDEAS/small books series Time has always been the great Given, the element which establishes the governing facts of human fate and which cannot be circumvented, deconstructed, or wished away. But these days we are tampering with Time in ways that affect how we live, the textures of our experience, and our very sense of what it is to be human. What is the nature of Time in our time? Why is it that, even as we live longer than ever before, we feel that we have ever less time? What effects do the hyper-fast technologies--computers, video games, instant communications--have on our perceptions, and even our bodies? And, as we examine the body and the mind on ever more microscopic levels, what are we learning? Hoffman regards our relationship to time--from jet-lag to aging to cryogenic freezing--in this broad, eye-opening look beyond the clock.
