  • MORE INFORMATION

    SPECIAL INTERESTS
    • He is interested in literary fiction with a pop or urban edge that fallsl in-between the commercial and experimental.
    • He prefers narrative-driven novels that construct and develop a real and engaging world.
    • He does not represent straight genre fiction (e.g. fantasy, romance, crime, horror, etc.), but will consider manuscripts that take a new slant on the traditions and tropes of a genre, such as Paul Auster’s ingenious, postmodernist take on detective fiction as seen in his New York Trilogy.
    • In non-fiction works, he considers pop culture, food/travel writing and contemporary art/culture to all be topics of interest, as well as biographies that relate to such concerns.
    • Memoirs that showcase an intense sense of immediacy and are willing to honestly confront difficult realities will be considered as well.
    • All non-fiction proposals/manuscripts should be rooted in contemporary life and culture or the relatively recent past. However, since histories relating to literature and art are a keen interest, such genres will also be considered for representation.
