Emma Parry joins Janklow & Nesbit literary agency

Janklow & Nesbit Associates
445 Park Avenue
New York, NY 10022-2606 

Janklow & Nesbit are a powerhouse literary agency with offices in New York, LA, and London. Clients include Anne Rice (Interview with a Vampire), William Goldman (The Princess Bride), Bill O'Reilly (The O'Reilly FactorCulture Warrior), Malcolm Gladwell (The Tipping PointBlink), David McCullough (Truman), Michael Moore (Fahrenheit 9/11), and many other top authors

Total number of clients: about 1,000. "Some of them are deceased, but only a tiny fraction," says agent Luke Janklow. “We do look at everything,” he adds. “What gets invited in is a very small portion of that."

Emma Parry was formerly a founding partner of the Fletcher & Parry literary agency (now known as Fletcher & Company). In 2008, she sold her half of the business and spent five years working freelance and raising her daughters. Now she’s returned the agenting business as a literary agent with Janklow & Nesbit.

“I’m on a scout for serious talent,” says Emma. She's calling for “the best storytellers, scientists, historians, journalists, wits, academics and experts wanting to reach the widest possible world.”
