"I started working on the book in the year 2000. The title I chose for the project, The Rest Is Noise, played off Hamlet's last words ("The rest is silence") and, more widely, the perception that classical composition devolved into noise as the twentieth century went on. The book was published in October 2007 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux; the UK edition, by 4th Estate, appeared in March 2008; Picador issued a US paperback, with an expanded discography, in October 2008. Translations are available from Companhia das Letras (Brazil), Ambo / Anthos (Netherlands), Piper Verlag (Germany), Seix Barral (Spain), Bompiani (Italy), Actes Sud (France), Casa das Letras (Portugal), PIW (Poland), Modan (Israel), Misuzu Shobo (Japan), and Book21 (South Korea), and are forthcoming from Argo (Czech Republic), Algoritam (Croatia), Janis Roze (Latvia), Ast Publishing (Russia), Dost Kitabevi Yayinlari (Turkey), and Guangxi Normal University Press (China)."
