Scribe pre-empts UK and Commonwealth rights for ‘major book about honesty’ from US podcaster

Scribe publisher Henry Rosenbloom has pre-empted UK and Commonwealth rights to a nonfiction book by US podcaster Anna Sale, creator and presenter of the podcast ‘Death, Sex and Money’, just before the Frankfurt Book Fair.

Sale’s book Go There: The Art of Talking about Hard Things ‘explores the challenges and benefits of asking people uncomfortable questions about their personal and professional lives, and receiving real answers’.

Rosenbloom said of the acquisition: ‘This will be a major book about the need for self-honesty and honesty, from a highly talented writer who has long demonstrated a rare ability to draw people out.’

The book is scheduled for publication in late 2019.
