About this item

Sophie works at leading London Literary Agency C+W and represents a wide range of Fiction and Non-Fiction authors, including Nathan Filer (The Shock of the Fall), Holly Seddom (The Hit List), Charlotte Northedge (The Guest House), Fiona Cummins (When I Was Ten), Catherine Cho (Inferno) and many more. You can view a full list of her clients and read more about her here.
Being an agent I am lucky enough to work closely with authors and champion brilliant books. My list is incredibly varied and the single thing that unifies the authors I represent is that I'm passionate about their work. It's usually the writing itself that pulls me in, but I am particularly partial to books that have a strong sense of place. I am looking for literary fiction, upmarket commercial fiction and crime fiction as well as novels that don't necessarily neatly fit into a single genre but that are strongly voice driven. I am also looking for non-fiction and the areas that interest me most are narrative non-fiction, memoir, international politics, current affairs, popular science, popular psychology, popular culture and food writing. I don't represent children's or fantasy fiction.
I started my career as a bookseller on Charing Cross Road, and became a buyer for Blackwell and later for Foyles. I then moved to New York and worked at Janklow & Nesbit Associates which opened my eyes to the world of agenting. I was hooked. On my return to the UK I joined Tibor Jones & Associates and started my own list, before moving to join Conville & Walsh. Some of my favourite books that I don't represent but that reflect my taste include Nothing to Envy by Barbara Demick, All My Puny Sorrows by Miriam Toews, Do No Harm by Henry Marsh, Station Eleven by Emily St John Mandel, Heat by Bill Burford, Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell, In Cold Blood by Truman Capote and Fingersmith by Sarah Waters.
