Alan Weisman

In his forthcoming book, Countdown, which sold for seven figures to Little, Brown (we control translation rights), Alan Weisman will probe as a journalist, not preach as an activist one possible, controversial solution to save the planet. One of the most brilliant journalists and environmental writers in the world, Alan Weisman is writing what will surely be an instant classic and his most important book to date.  Alan Weisman’s hugely successful The World Without Us spent 26 weeks on The New York Times Bestseller list and considers what would happen if human beings disappeared due to climate change, disease or war.  The book was selected as Nonfiction Book of the Year by Time and Entertainment Weekly; Best Book of the Year by Salon, Mother Jones, Canada National Post; #1 Nonfiction Audio Book of the Year by iTunes; and a Finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award.
