New non-fiction list
Chronicle Books is to name its new non-fiction imprint Chronicle Prism. The list is led by Mark Tauber, who joined the company last autumn and who will also be in charge of Chronicle's first foray into audio. Tauber was previously at HarperOne. The list is being celebrated at the London Book Fair this afternoon (13 March).
The first Chronicle Prism titles will be Dumpty: The Age of Trump in Verse by actor and author John Lithgow; Between Heaven and Hell by journalist David Talbot, an intimate journey through the life-changing year following his stroke; and Find Your Fuckyeah by Alexis Rockley, a science-based guide that debunks "warm and fuzzy personal-growth fads".
Tauber said: "The name Chronicle Prism evokes the way our authors illuminate and magnify important topics from surprising perspectives and unexpected angles, often inspiring readers to change or bend course. It also puts a delightful twist on Chronicle Books' motto 'See things differently' and its beloved eyeglasses logo."
Chronicle Books is distributed in the UK by Abrams & Chronicle.
