Product Details


Advance praise for Warmth:

“Sherrell brilliantly balances despair and hope in his searing debut . . . [with] nuanced reflections on how a caring and thoughtful person should respond to climate change . . . This indelible, necessary work makes a global issue deeply personal. Publishers Weekly (STARRED) 

“Insightful reflections from a thoughtful, energetic activist.” Kirkus Reviews

“Sherrell’s strikingly perceptive book is neither a prescription for hope or for despair, but a call for a clear-eyed examination of one of the most pressing questions of our time—what do we owe the next generation?” —Jenny Offill, New York Times bestselling author of Weather and Dept. of Speculation

“Beautifully rendered and bracingly honest, this book helped me do the impossible: live in the space between grief and hope.” —Jenny Odell, New York Times bestselling author of How to Do Nothing

“Searchingly honest, this fine book is the work of someone actively engaged in the most important fight of our time (maybe of all time), and also of a writer able to establish the necessary distance. Dan Sherrell is smart, obviously, but he’s also something much more important: open, vulnerable, able to face fully that which we all must grapple with in this overheating century.” —Bill McKibben, New York Times bestselling author of Falter

“In this insider account of the struggle for the earth against the forces of corporate greed that threaten it, Daniel Sherrell has written a tender letter to the uncertain future—at once intimate and angry, exasperated and brave.” —Anne Boyer, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Undying

“Little has been written that so vividly captures what it is like to be young and so-very-much alive in the wealthiest nation in the world as it comes undone. Daniel Sherrell’s Warmth is a groundbreaking work that illustrates how to fight—emotionally, intellectually, physically, with all one’s might—for a future worth inhabiting.” —Elizabeth Rush, author of Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore 

“An urgent cri de coeur from a passionate and clear-eyed new talent.” —Kim Stanley Robinson, New York Times bestselling author of The Ministry for the Future 

“[Warmth] speaks powerfully to all generations . . . Impassioned, conflicted, dogged, poetic, hugely intelligent, Warmth is a personal meditation on how to act and grieve at the same time, how to keep faith and fight for the future as you watch it disappear.” —Kim Mahood, author of Position Doubtful
