I worked with Mitchell for two years, went through four rounds of submissions, only two rejections. The rest were no response. He responded to email sporadically after two face-to-face meetings. He was too busy to read any new material. He quit Curtis Brown and never said a word. Only found out because his assistant was reading my emails (at least someone was).

Suppose I knew this one was a stretch, but the ones where you don't even get a response really sting!
