About me

Photo of Nigel Rodgers

I write on the very varied subjects listed below. Despite their variety, they have one thing in common: they enthuse and excite me. My forte is being multi-disciplinary. Subjects on which I have written include:

  • architecture
  • art
  • ecology
  • history
  • literature
  • noise pollution
  • philosophy
  • travel

After graduating with a degree in history and history of art from Cambridge University, I have lived in London, Paris and Vienna. I am now based in Wiltshire, almost within sight of Stonehenge. There is a small megalith just outside my own house. I am the founder of   Pipedown, the Campaign for Freedom from Piped Music  www.pipedown.info/, and was a founder-member of the Siesta Club (currently in abeyance.)

My books have been translated into fourteen languages.
