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, Sylvie Perry, Rafe Posey, Katherine Seligman, and

    • Erin Eileen Almond's virtuosic debut transports you into the rarefied world of classical music, where two violinists—one trying to reignite his career, the other just realizing the extent of her power—discover the price they must pay to make their art. A beautiful and engrossing tale of madness, magic, and music.
