Laura Gross 13

An agent with Laura Gross Literary Agency (see other agents at this agency).

About

I grew up in London, where I worked for a prominent literary agent, as well as for three Members of Parliament (which allowed me a fascinating view of the British government’s innards before security was tight). After completing a degree in Comparative Literature at Brown University, I began my publishing career as an assistant at two leading New York literary agencies. I then became the youngest editor at one of New York’s oldest publishing houses. I have been a literary agent for 30 years and am extremely lucky to love what I do. I’m also fortunate that I am able to represent a broad range of both fiction and non-fiction writers. I am particularly interested in politics, current affairs, and espionage from a diverse range of voices and perspectives.
