My Manuscript Wish List®

Lily joined UTA in 2019, and represents clients in both fiction and nonfiction. She is drawn to literary fiction with dark and offbeat humor, gripping narratives, strong commercial hooks, family dynamics, and nuanced female perspectives. She especially loves sweeping family dramas, strange and unusual women in strange and unusual circumstances, and books with strong voices. Additionally, she is interested in literary mystery and some speculative novels. For nonfiction, she is looking for narrative nonfiction, memoirs, or essay collections that are funny, outrageous, shocking, emotional, or all of the above. She enjoys true crime, pop culture, and narrative history with a feminist bent. She is not looking for historical WWII fiction, spy thrillers or science/psychology nonfiction at this time. Some books she would have loved to work on : Bunny by Mona Awad; The New Me by Halle Butler, Severance by Ling Ma, Friends & Strangers by J. Courtney Sullivan, The Rabbit Hutch by Tess Gunty, and I’m Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid.
