Orion Spring will publish The Three Minute Philosopher by Fabrice Midal.
Pippa Wright, publishing director for Orion Spring, acquired UK and Commonwealth rights from Kerry Glencorse at Susanna Lea Associates. The title will be published in the UK in April 2021.
According to Orion Spring, the book was an "immediate bestseller" in France, where it was published by Flammarion. Rights have also been sold to dtv in Germany, Curtea Veche in Romania, Orenda in Turkey and to A W Bruna in Holland.
The book features quotes from 40 different thinkers, writers, artists and philosophers and looks at how readers can apply their philosophies to everyday dilemmas. Each meditation only takes three minutes to read.
Wright commented: "The whole team was charmed by Fabrice’s clever, bite-sized philosophical essays, and we can’t wait to bring his bestseller to the UK."
