I’m Danielle Bukowski, an associate agent and foreign rights manager at Sterling Lord Literistic. I’m looking for literary fiction, smart bookclub fiction, upmarket fiction, and select nonfiction. Particularly, I want to hear from underrepresented and marginalized voices. My favorite novels balance a unique hook and well-paced plot with strong writing and a distinctive voice; are entertaining and thought-provoking; have a strong sense of place; are stylistically bold; speak to our current moment or are set in a historical moment that resonates with our own.
My favorite nonfiction books expand my view of the world; provide an unconventional perspective on a conventional topic; are rigorously reported and researched; weave in personal interest; read like a novel.
If some of the above describes your book, I’d love to read it.
They have written books such as…
This book, in what feels like a new vision for the 21st century novel, made me happy.

Memorial is a true page-turner. I was entranced, picking this book up every chance I got. Bryan Washington is a great writer and I love the story he tells here. Intriguing. Each character stays with me.
