Carrie Plitt

I am actively building a list of authors writing non-fiction and fiction. I love representing non-fiction by authors who are passionate about their chosen topic, and who can convey their expertise in a clear, unique and invigorating manner. I have a particular interest in books about the issues facing our society today, narrative non-fiction, popular science, big ideas, nature writing, history, travel, feminism and memoir. In fiction, the books I represent range from the very literary to those you might read in a book club. Besides excellent writing, I am often drawn to novels that examine relationships and families, are portraits of complex characters, or capture the zeitgeist in some way – even when they are set in the past. I am always looking for writers from underrepresented backgrounds. I also host an award-winning books podcast called Literary Friction, which has featured authors including Zadie Smith, Elizabeth Strout, Sally Rooney, Gary Younge, and Ottessa Moshfegh.
