We are thrilled to announce that Katherine May’s bestselling memoir Wintering has claimed the No. 7 spot on The Sunday Times paperback non-fiction bestseller list!  This is a particularly rare moment as it happens two years after publication, which illustrates how this intimate, revelatory book is resonating with thousands more readers through word of mouth praise.

Wintering has seen huge success in the US, remaining on the New York Times bestseller list for multiple weeks, and even popping back on the Boston Globe hardcover bestseller list in January, and on the Seattle Times bestseller list this February.  Her publisher, Penguin Random House, are now on their 12th printing as there is so much demand! It also recently hit the German Der Spiegel bestseller list and Sweden’s Adlibris list.

Wintering is a poignant and comforting meditation on the fallow periods of life, times when we must retreat to care for and repair ourselves. Katherine May thoughtfully shows us how to come through these times with the wisdom of knowing that, like the seasons, our winters and summers are the ebb and flow of life.

Since hardback publication in February 2020, Wintering was Longlisted for the Wainright Prize for Nature Writing in 2020 and chosen as a BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week.  Wintering has received mountains of praise from a raft of Sunday Times bestselling authors such as Elizabeth Gilbert, who called it ‘every bit as beautiful and healing as the season,’ and Raynor Winn who described it as ‘a beautiful, gentle exploration of the dark season of life and the light of spring that eventually follows.’

Caitlin Moran discusses Katherine May’s Wintering and her own winter survival guide, calling ‘a book for the soul’ here.

Congratulations, Katherine, on Wintering’s UK bestsellerdom! And if you have not yet ordered your copy, you can do so here in the UK, and here in the US.
