Sten Nadolny is the author of 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.

Nadolny's masterpiece, 'The Discovery of Slowness' tells the incredible story of Sir John Franklin, a sailor and explorer who battled the frozen Arctic wastes and paved the way for the discovery of the Northwest Passage. Ridiculed for his slowness in his youth, Franklin's quiet calm later helps him to become an icon of adventure.

A classic of contemporary German literature, 'The Discovery of Slowness' is not only a riveting account of a remarkable life but also a profound and thought-provoking meditation on time.
