A Book of Silence
After a noisy upbringing as one of six children, and adulthood as a vocal feminist and mother, the author began to crave silence. She has spent periods of silence in the Sinai desert, the Australian bush, and the Isle of Skye. This book interweaves these experiences with the history of silence through fairy-tale and myth.
