Blake Friedmann Literary Agency

About this Agency

The Blake Friedmann Literary Agency was founded in 1982 by merging the Julian Friedmann Literary Agency with the Carole Blake Literary Agency; Carole handled book rights and Julian handled film and television rights. Since then, the agency has grown to include four agents in the literary department, and three film and TV agents in the media department. Our focus is on representing the most talented, dynamic and exciting writers and directors across all genres. Our intention has always been to represent writers' careers, rather than individual books or projects, and to sell those writers into as many markets, languages and media platforms as possible. Our authors have won a wide range of prestigious prizes, including RNA Historical Novel of the Year, the Caine Prize, International Horror Guild Award, Prix Femina Etranger, Authors' Club First Book Award, ITV People's Bestseller Dagger Award, the Commonwealth Prize, the Windham-Campbell Prize and PEN Awards; and been shortlisted for, among others, the Man Booker Prize, the International Man Booker Prize, the IMPAC Prize, Theakstons Crime Novel of the Year, the Costa Book Awards, Guardian First Book Award, and the Orange Prize. Our books have topped bestseller lists all over the world, and continue to regularly appear in the Sunday Times bestseller lists.
