The Discovery of Slowness - Sten Nadolny

The Discovery of Slowness by Sten Nadolny was a huge commercial and critical success across Europe, where it is considered the popular author's master piece. The novel recounts the life of the nineteenth-century British explorer Sir John Franklin (1786-1847).Through the author's acute reading of history and his marvellous storytelling prowess, the reader follows John Franklin's development from awkward schoolboy and ridiculed teenager to expedition leader, governor of Tasmania, and icon of adventure.
