Carolin Emcke, winner of the 2016 Peace Prize of the German Book Trade, is one of Germany's most distinctive authors and journalists, who has distinguished herself as a chronicler of current phenomena. For 15 years, Carolin Emcke travelled throughout the world to report on crisis regions. In Good Friday Considerations she contemplates the function and value of silence, which became a new and unfamiliar exercise during the pandemic. «All familiar practices and habits had to be interrupted and transformed, all activity and travel plans thwarted. The pause - it seemed - overwhelmed a fast-paced, noisy, hyper-communicative society that had forgotten silence and mourning».
