Notified that I chose another agent: 9/18/22

I will say that though I did not go further with Rachel, she had the absolute kindest things to say about my manuscript. She would have been an amazing champion for my book and the way she praised it really encouraged me. I hope that others who work with her get to see that amazing kindness and care that she has and gives to manuscripts. :)

Hello, and thank you for the opportunity to review your work. I'm afraid the project isn't a good fit for me, but I wish you all the best in finding representation elsewhere.

email Q 7/21/22, to agent open to upmarket/women's book-club fiction; "a genre-testing novel that may best be deemed humor and historicizing with an upmarket reach. The central theme is the clash of matriarchal and patriarchal worldviews, and it offers a multilevel read—from enjoying the comedy of a blustering big-shot narrator brought down to size (spoiler alert: it’s the women in his life, past and present, who prevail), on up to sleuthing out abundant literary and cultural allusions. . . ."

Finally, an agent who says she's not scared of heavy content. I'm praying so hard.
Also, like Sapphire_Demoness said, my confirmation went to spam.
