Hamish Hamilton to publish Jonathan Safran Foer’s take on climate change

PRH imprint Hamish Hamilton will publish Jonathan Safran Foer’s "urgent and compelling work" of non-fiction We Are The Weather: Saving The Planet Begins At Breakfast later this year. 

Simon Prosser bought British and Commonwealth rights from Caspian Dennis at Abner Stein, on behalf of Nicole Aragi. We Are The Weather will be published on 10th October 2019.

"In the book, Foer shows that a significant proportion of global carbon emissions come from farming meat – but that cutting back is much easier than we think and still has a huge positive effect on the environment," said Hamish Hamilton. "Forgoing animal products for just part of the day is enough to change the world."

Prosser said: "Few books could be more urgent than this one – and because it is written by Jonathan it has an emotional depth and resonance which moves us -- to feel, to believe and, crucially, to act. Like all of his work it is a unique combination of head and heart, of thinking and feeling – expressed in language that consistently surprises, delights and rings wholly true."
