"The demon of speed is often associated with forgetting, with avoidance … and slowness with memory and confronting," observes Milan Kundera in his novel Slowness. With that purpose in mind—a search for slowness and tranquility—Andy Merrifield sets out on a journey of the soul with a friend's donkey, Gribouille, to walk amid the ruins and spectacular vistas of southern France's Haute-Auvergne. As Merrifield contemplates literature, science, truth, and beauty amid the French countryside, Gribouille surprises him with his subtle wisdom, reminding him time and again that enlightenment is all around us if we but seek it.

Andy Merrifield has taught geography in the US and Great Britain and lives in Le Pouget, France, a tiny hamlet of 9 people (that's in the summer, only 6 in winter) that is 90 minutes or so from the nearest large city. He has previously published books in the UK and France on Karl Marx and Guy Debord.
