Not sure if this will help anyone but found this article on him. Was very helpful for me.
Evan Goldfried is the new agent at Jill Grinberg Literary Management, and he's off to a good start, pulling in a six-figure deal for his first client, Kevin Hearne (see this article). Now he's looking to expand his list. He writes:

I am a young agent at Jill Grinberg Literary Management, a boutique literary agency based in Manhattan. Though we are known primarily for our premier award winning and bestselling children's and young adult list (Scott Westerfeld, Garth Nix, Catherine Gilbert Murdock, the Bemelmans Estate for the Madeline series), we also represent many adult fiction and nonfiction authors of all ilk, such as biographer, NYT bestseller and National Book Award finalist T.J. Stiles. I came over to JGLM after five years at William Morris Agency, where I was a coordinator selling both domestic and foreign rights after years of working with many of the agency's clients.

I'm here at JGLM bu

As for Evan's ONE client, I believe I met him at a booksigning. Turns out Evan's basically leaving the business, but still repping the one author. Too bad.

Anyone know if they're a "no from one is a no from all" agency? I got a reject from Jill earlier in the month, but thought I might try Evan.
