An agent with Levine Greenberg Rostan Literary Agency (see other agents at this agency)

About

Matthew Huff joined the team in 2016 as the agent’s assistant for James Levine, proving that all those years of reading Harry Potter and Harriet the Spy were good for something other than BookIt! Pizza vouchers. Hailing from what he believes is the best state, Michigan, Matthew grew up on a steady diet of mystery novels and milkshakes, before heading to Grove City, Pennsylvania for college. While majoring in English, his tastes in literature expanded to include everything from T.S. Eliot to Tina Fey, while his tastes in food remained that of a picky third grader. Scrounging around for any crack in the fortress of New York publishing, Matthew worked three jobs at once until he eventually landed at LGR. Now a solidified Manhattanite, he spends his weekends watching The Sopranos, eating donuts, and unashamedly dragging his friends to the touristiest venues the city has to offer. Matthew’s tastes in books vary widely but he especially loves anything with a dash of mystery and adventure, whether that be a middle grade/young adult novel, a high concept fantasy saga, or a twisty literary thriller. As long as the narrative is strong and the voice engaging, he is along for the ride. He loves writers like Eoin Colfer, Lemony Snicket, Michael Grant, George RR Martin, Stephen King, and Donna Tartt. A Slytherin in the best way possible, Matthew loves a book with a good villain, but at the end of the day, as long as he has a book in one hand and a Kit Kat in the other, he is as happy as a clam (a food by the way that he doesn’t like).
