About 3 hours after I emailed query, he responded saying "this sounds really powerful." He requested the full manuscript, which I sent the same day.

I nudged after almost 5 weeks (11/19) asking whether he'd had a chance to review the manuscript, but received no response. Not sure if that was too soon to nudge or what to do at this point. It has been 47 days since I submitted the manuscript, although we also had an intervening holiday.

Thank you for giving me a chance to consider your work. Unfortunately I
don't believe I'm the right person to represent this effectively.

Publishing is a subjective industry by nature so don't be discouraged.
I wish you the best of luck finding an agent who can represent your work
with the enthusiasm it deserves.
