She represents literary and upmarket fiction and select creative nonfiction. She also works with a small group of illustrators and the rare children’s book that speaks to all ages. She is especially seeking high-concept, genre-bending fiction that grapples with some aspect of our collective past or possible future, character- and idea-driven fiction steeped in specificity of voice and place, intimate stories with global resonance, braided cultural criticism, poets exploring other forms, and international writers. Across her list, she seeks a ferocity of language, intellect, purpose, and heart.
