Hello,

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.

The writers I represent include: Erin Eileen Almond, Keziah Frost, Edgar Gomez, Joseph Han, Stephanie Jimenez, Nancy Johnson, Professor Tom Mole, Rafe Posey, Katherine Seligman, and Bryan Washington.

They have written books such as
