About Ariella Feiner
I started working at PFD in 2006 before moving to United Agents and I now represent many bestselling, critically-acclaimed, and award-winning authors across fiction and non-fiction, including Sunday Times bestselling books, Richard and Judy bookclub picks, million-copy selling authors and #1 New York Times bestselling books. In 2017, The Bookseller named me as a Rising Star.
One of the joys of being a literary agent is the range of books I can work on. I adore the rush of being the first to discover exciting new voices and the strategy of working with authors to shape their careers in the long term. I want manuscripts which make me sit up and take notice of them, whether it be through beautiful prose, a hugely original idea or, at their best, stories which make me sob.
I am always open to submissions and have discovered many of my most exciting authors that way. In fiction do send me crime and thrillers (apart from espionage and military-related ones), issue-led books, plot-driven stories, reading group books, high-concept tales, a great elevator pitch, novels with strong female characters, historical fiction, and anything like Room, The Other Boleyn Girl or The Time Traveller's Wife, which breaks the mould. Recent fiction I've adored includes The Lido, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, The Familiars, The Rumour, and My Sister, The Serial Killer.
On the non-fiction front, do be in touch with exciting non-fiction such as topics which feel untouched before now or are inspiring, expert-led ideas, mouth-watering cook books, narrative memoir, and empowering female tales. Non-fiction which has moved me enormously or made me laugh includes This is Going to Hurt, Wild, Educated, and I Am Not Your Baby Mother.
