September Publishing acquires 'extraordinary' wildlife book from Roberts

September Publishing will publish James Roberts' non-fiction debut Two Lights in 2022. 

The publisher acquired world English language rights from Robert Caskie Ltd.

The synopsis for the title reads: "Two Lights uses dawn and dusk as a prism through which to explore landscape, wildlife and our human responses and connections to the natural world. With interwoven strands of personal reflection and story, the book ranges continents — from the Welsh Black Mountains to the Great Rift Valley, through English dusks and endless Arctic dawns."

Hannah MacDonald, publisher, commented: "Roberts' writing on wildlife is extraordinary. It is grounded by science and acute observation, but the rhythm and language deliver such an immersive experience that it makes for transcendent reading! We are excited about working with James on Two Lights and pushing the genre of wildlife literature into new territory."

Roberts said: "We’ve been telling ourselves the wrong stories about life beyond the human community for centuries, and it has led us here, to a twilight for many species and a draining of our own experience. It’s an honour to be able to have my own story published by September."
