Happy publication day to Enchantment by Katherine May, which publishes in US hardback today (Riverhead Books, Penguin Random House). From the New York Times-bestselling author of Wintering, this is another dazzling book by May which readers won’t want to miss.
In this beautiful and meditative book, May invites the reader to come with her on a journey to reawaken our innate sense of wonder and awe. In an age where so many of us feel exhausted and anxious and trapped in a grind of constant change, May offers a new way for us to relate to this strange new world. Infused with hope, candour and warmth, Enchantment helps readers to reconnect with nature, as well as their selves, providing an essential and nourishing read.
Buzz has been building ahead of US publication. USA Today included Enchantment in their round up of must-read new books, and it has been featured in the New York Times Well section. Enchantment has also featured in the Indie Next List for March 2023 and The Washington Post’s ’10 noteworthy books for February 2023′. People Magazine reviewed it for their New in Nonfiction column, saying “Life can be overwhelming, May knows, and in this wise volume she invites us to slow down and allow ourselves to become enraptured by the beauty of the earth.”
Enchantment has received an outpouring of glowing reviews:

“Katherine May gave so many of us language and vision for the long communal ‘wintering’ of the last years. Welcome this beautiful meditation for the time we’ve now entered. I cannot imagine a more gracious companion. This book is a gift.” – New York Times bestselling author Krista Tippett
“Gentle inspiration for those who feel exhausted or helpless… May shows how paying deliberate attention to what’s around us can surprise us with insights and reveal new connections that deepen our appreciation for the world.” – Washington Post
