On Quiet - Nikki Gemmell

International bestselling author Nikki Gemmell writes on the power of quiet in today’s shouty world. Why we need it now more than ever. How to glean quiet, hold on to it, and work within it. Quiet comes as a shock in these troubled times. Quietism means ‘devotional contemplation and abandonment of the will … a calm acceptance of things as they are’. Gemmell makes the case for why quiet is steadily gaining ground in this noisy age.


Nikki Gemmell is the author of nine novels and four works of non-fiction. Her books have been translated into 22 languages. She is a columnist for The Australian.
