I represent adult fiction. I’m currently looking for:
- Near-historical fiction (19th-20th century), especially based on true stories that have been overlooked
- Literary fiction of all kinds, interesting narrative devices, and coming-of-age novels for adult readers
- Upmarket women’s fiction and book club fiction, with brave female protagonists (more Jess Walter than Jennifer Weiner); no erotica or romance, please, unless it takes a backseat to the story
- Certain psychological thrillers, suspense, and literary mysteries; “whydunnit” instead of “whodunnit”
I love narratives that interweave the past with the present, war-era novels, and epic, multi-generational family sagas. I appreciate great prose in many contexts, and I look for writers who are serious about their craft. I would LOVE to find the next Nicole Krauss or Donna Tartt – I know you’re out there!
