On Time and Water – international publications are coming out.

On Time and Water is being published worldwide these days. And it has been a privilege to work with the great publishers and wonderful translators. The English version is coming out by Serpents Tail the 6th of August. The US and Canadian versions will be published in March 2021.

The theme of the book is this:

“In the next hundred years, the nature of water on Earth will undergo a fundamental change. Glaciers will melt, the sea level will rise, and its acidity will change more than it has in the past 50 million years. These changes will affect all life on Earth, everyone who we know, and everyone who we love. It is more complex than the mind can comprehend, greater than all of our past experience, bigger than language. What words can grasp an issue of this magnitude?

Andri Snær Magnason takes both a personal and a scientific approach in an attempt to capture this vast issue—weaving his way through climate science via ancient legends about sacred cows, stories of ancestors and relatives, and interviews with the Dalai Lama. The resulting narrative is at once a travel story, a world history, and a reminder to live in harmony with future generations.”

On Time and Water just came out in Germany by Suhrkamp Verlag / Insel. A nice review about Wasser und Zeit can be found here.

On Time and Water is out in Poland by Karakter publishing house. And in the end of this year by Planetopija in Croatia. They also just publshed The Story of the Blue Planet.

On Time and Water is coming out in all the nordic countries. In Norway by Aschehoug published in September 2020 and also in Denmark by Klim publishers.

The book is being published in Sweden by Norstedts and in Italy by Iperboria.

I will make an other post with the other publications when I get more information about publishing dates. The book is coming out in France, Spain It is a challenge to publish during these strange times – but I still believe – a book will find its reader and the message of connecting us to a deep and intimate future is more urgent than ever.
