Surrender in softcover, Emmy Nomination, Zooropa at 30

Original Story by Aaron J. Sams (2023-07-12)

For those who passed on the hardcover of Bono’s Surrender, the soft cover version is now starting to appear in presale listings for this October and November depending on your location.

In Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States, the book will be released on October 10, 2023.

In Australia and New Zealand the book will arrive in softcover almost a month later on November 7, 2023.

  • Australia, Paperback, November 7, 2023 [Penguin]
  • New Zealand, Paperback, November 7, 2023 [Penguin]

In Poland, the soft cover arrived at the same time as the hardcover version of the book. Many international versions of the book were released in softcover to begin, and were not released in a hardcover version, including versions sold in France, Spain and Brazil, a new version is not expected in these regions. It is still early yet, so if you don’t see these new soft cover versions listed at your favourite retailer yet, they will pop up soon, and will be widely available upon release.

Many thanks to Alan Ivory for the heads up on this one.
