What I'm looking for...

I am looking for literary and upmarket commercial fiction. Strong, original voices with characters that become part of your life, uplifting narratives and fiction that blinds you with subtlety. Stories with beautiful prose, with sentences you can’t help but underline and write down in whatever paper or device available.

On the non-fiction side, I am looking for emotional, powerful stories that surprise you and challenge you, and narratives that make you laugh as well as make you think.

I am always looking for feminist narratives both in fiction and in non-fiction, and I’m particularly interested in voices from underrepresented backgrounds.

 

(Not currently looking for children’s or YA, sci-fi or crime.)
