We are absolutely thrilled that Enchantment: Reawakening Wonder in an Anxious Age by Katherine May publishes in the UK today with Faber & Faber. Already taking the US by storm since its publication on the 28th February, we can’t wait for UK readers to discover this beautifully written and soulful book.
UK and Commonwealth rights for Enchantment were acquired by Associate publisher Laura Hassan in a fiercely competitive 13-way auction. From the bestselling author of Wintering, Enchantment explores the ways in which we can find nourishment and healing in our new and changed world. May invites the reader to pay attention to the natural world to reconnect with it, finding joy, inspiration, and beauty in all our surroundings. Hassan praised the importance of Enchantment in our current climate: “Enchantment inspires us to pay attention, to seek, to connect and to charge our lives with wonder. Could there be anything more inspiring? We need voices like Katherine’s now more than ever.”
Enchantment has already gone from strength to strength over in the US, landing the incredible No.1 spot in the National Indie Bestseller List and No.5 in the New York Times bestseller list. It has also featured in The New York Times Well section and was selected in The Washington Post’s ‘10 noteworthy books for February 2023′. Excitement has been building over in the UK ahead of publication. Enchantment was selected as the Bookseller Editor’s Choice for March 2023, and reviews have been nothing but glowing. Stylist praised May’s “gorgeous descriptions of the natural world”, while Booklist described Enchantment as “beautifully written and profoundly reasoned.”
Enchantment follows the incredible success of Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times (Penguin Random House), which became a New York Times, Sunday Times and Der Spiegel bestseller that was translated into 25 languages, adapted as a BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week, and shortlisted for the Porchlight and Barnes and Noble Book of the Year.
