Ariella Feiner 5

An agent with United Agents (see other agents at this agency).

About

I started working at PFD in 2006 before moving to United Agents and I now represent many bestselling, critically-acclaimed, and award-winning authors across fiction and non-fiction, including Sunday Times bestselling books, Richard and Judy bookclub picks, and New York Times bestselling books. In 2017, The Bookseller named me as a Rising Star. One of the joys of being a literary agent is the range of books I can work on. I adore the rush of being the first to discover exciting new voices and the strategy of working with authors to shape their careers in the long term. I want manuscripts which make me sit up and take notice of them, whether it be through beautiful prose, a hugely original idea or, at their best, stories which make me sob. I am always open to submissions and have discovered many of my most exciting authors that way.

Country & Professional Associations

United Kingdom Member of AAA

Fiction Open

In fiction, do send me reading group books, high-concept tales, crime and thrillers, books with a great elevator pitch, novels with strong female characters and historical fiction which has something to say about the world we live in now. I am also very much on the lookout for more diverse voices and books which open conversations around important topics. I want to step into someone else’s shoes and see the world from that character’s perspective. Recent fiction I've adored includes The Confessions of Frannie Langton, The Familiars, The Recovery of Rose Gold, Girl A, How To Kill Your Family, and In Five Years.
