About the Author

Erling Kagge is an explorer who was the first in history to reach the 'three poles' - North, South and the summit of Everest. During these expeditions, he experienced extreme periods of silence - the longest being fifty days. He has since returned to Norway and searches for moments of silence amongst noisy family life and work as a writer and publisher. Silence will be published in 33 languages and is already a bestseller in Norway and Italy.
