About

Danielle Svetcov wrote for the New York Times, U.S. News & World Report, Forbes, and the Chicago Tribune Magazine before joining LGR in 2002. Books she rereads for love: I Capture The Castle, Lone Pilgrim, Jane Eyre, Devil in the White City, and Naked. Audiobooks that she’s recently listened to (in the car) on rainy days: Will In Scarlet, Ramona the Pest, The Little Princess. Books she’s sold that keep coming up in conversation: Deep: Freediving, Renegade Science, and What the Ocean Tells Us About Ourselves (and its natural follow-up, The Science of Breath); a parody of absurdity, Skymaul: Happy Crap You Can Buy From A Plane; the New York Times bestseller that celebrates indulgent cooking, Run Fast Eat Slow; a blog-turned-memoir that looks innocent enough, Half Baked: The Story of My Nerves, My Newborn, and How We Both Learned to Breathe; a memoir for at-risk fetishizers, Yoga Bitch: One Woman's Quest to Conquer Skepticism, Cynicism, and Cigarettes on the Path to Enlightenment; The Book of the Unnamed Midwife, dystopian fiction that presaged Zika; and an ensemble novel, The Annie Year, that blurs heartland and heartburn. And, in pursuit of sustenance to fuel her reading, she represents an incredible stable of chefs, restaurateurs, and food/ag-thinkers—many of them IACP and Beard Award winners—including: Bryant Terry (Afro-Vegan), Thomas McNaughton (flour + water), Russell Moore and Allison Hopelain (This is Camino), Evan and Sarah Rich (Rich Table), Karen Solomon (Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It), Adrianna Adarme (The Year of Cozy), Michelle McKenzie (Dandelion & Quince), Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinski (State Bird Provisions), and Celia Sack (The Omnivore’s Keeper), among many others. She is in the agency’s California office.
