Carrie Plitt

I am actively building a list of authors writing non-fiction and fiction, with a focus on debuts. I love well-written non-fiction by authors (often experts) who are passionate about their chosen topic, and 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 art. 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 have unique voices, are portraits of complex characters, examine relationships, are coming of age stories, or capture the zeitgeist. I am always on the look-out for writers from underrepresented backgrounds. I also host a monthly books podcast and radio show called Literary Friction, which has featured authors including Sally Rooney, Gary Younge, Karl Ove Knausgaard and Ottessa Moshfegh.
