EVER WONDER HOW LITERARY AGENTS CHOOSE their authors? Or what common writing problems they see? Or if it really is more difficult to sell a book than it used to be?
If so, check out “The Art of Agenting,” an interview with super-agent Chris Parris-Lamb—whose sale of Chad Harbach’s amazing debut novel, THE ART OF FIELDING, was his first big agenting success. The article, written by novelist Jonathan Lee, appeared recently in GUERNICA MAGAZINE and offers fascinating insights into the Big Leagues of lit agenting.
It also includes some (deliberately!) controversial comments about National Novel Writing Month!
(It’s okay, Chris. Sticks and stones may break our bones, but a little controversy? No probs. That’ll just toughen us up for November.)
