Jacob Surpin, Senior Editor

Jacob Surpin joined TarcherPerigee in the spring of 2023, where he focuses on personal transformation, popular science, outdoors/nature, performance, and creativity titles. He is especially drawn to books that cut against expectation in some way or that reveal or draw on something previously hidden – ideas, stories, insights, teachings, or practices that can impact our daily lives.

Jacob’s first acquisitions at TarcherPerigee have included a travelogue of the world’s most intricate animal civilizations by adventurer and animal advocate Ryan Huling and illustrator Oliver Uberti, an investigative deep dive into the plastic industry and Big Oil by environmental journalist Beth Gardiner, and a guide for driving positive interactions and communicating with connection, alignment, and fluidity by trial attorney and social media phenomenon Jefferson Fisher.

Prior to joining TarcherPerigee, Jacob was Senior Editor and Associate Publisher at Parallax Press.
