OUT NOW

Hygge, A Celebration of Simple Pleasures. Living the Danish Way

 The paperback edition is out now, published by Trapeze (Orion).

‘There was an audible cheer in the office when I acquired this book – hygge has captured everyone’s imagination and Charlotte is the perfect author to bring it to life. Being the antithesis of lifestyle trends that centre on denial (whether that’s no sugar, no gluten, no possessions), hygge is clearly a philosophy we can all get on board with. It is reaching its zeitgeist moment, and this book will lead the way.’ Anna Valentine, Publishing Director, Non-Fiction

Abrahams’ Hygge could fill the Norwegian Wood hole this Christmas,’ Bea Carvalho, non fiction buyer for Waterstones.

 ‘Be still my soul’ is a message I took from this intelligent and enjoyable book. Far from being another overwrought lifestyle and personal development manual it presents as a companionable yet practical reminder that life doesn’t have always to be lived in the fast lane.’ Jo Cranford, The Erotic Review, 14th October
