Product description

Review

"This is both a wonderful historical novel and a spell-binding individual portrait ... This is a marvellous translation of a masterly work." (The Observer)

"Time, action and vision - a magical hat-trick and one that this translation pays faithful tribute to, capturing grand adventures like a detailed painting." (The Scotsman)

"Nadolny brilliantly sets the narrative pace to the rhythms of the frozen landscape, and to the 'slowness which is bred by hunger." (Robert MacFarlane)

"Sten Nadolny shipped us into beautiful, fatal Arctic wastes with his spellbinding novels." (Boyd Tonkin)

"Slow movements of emotion and plot pull the reader expertly in, and the book with its self-consciously ponderous charm, offers all the pleasures of the best historical fiction." (Daily Telegraph)

About the Author

Sten Nadolny (b. 1942) was a historian and film-maker, before writing four novels and two collections of essays. The Discovery of Slowness (1983) is regarded as his masterpiece. It has been translated into all major languages and has sold over one million copies worldwide, and was nominated for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize. Sten Nadolny lives in Berlin.
