About time I told you about another presenter, don't you think?
This time, let me introduce you to one of our wonderful returning presenters, this one an agent. Meet Sorche Fairbank of Fairbank Literary:
Since establishing Fairbank Literary Representation in 2002, Sorche Elizabeth Fairbank has had the pleasure of working with a dynamic and varied list, representing best-selling authors, Edgar recipients, award-winning journalists, and of course one of her favorite kinds of client – the first-time author. Her tastes in novels tend toward literary fiction, international voices and women’s voices, and the mystery/suspense genre. On the nonfiction side, she is most likely to take on books that tackle current events and societal issues with a narrative treatment. She has a strong interest in women’s voices and class and race issues, quality lifestyle books (food, wine, and home design), sports, and pop culture.
Subjects and genres not of interest to Sorche and Fairbank Literary include: sci-fi and fantasy, children’s and YA, self-help, romance, sports fiction, or anything that opens with a dream scene and/or exhaustive descriptions of weather.
Authors and books represented by Fairbank Literary include: O. Henry Prize winner Charlotte Forbes; Pulitzer nominee and LA Times Cairo Bureau Chief Jeffrey Fleishman; Matthew Frederick and his best-selling 101 Things I Learned In Architecture School; the estate of Robin Moore (The French Connection, The Green Berets, etc.); Xaviera Hollander (The Happy Hooker); Darci Klein’s To Full Term, A Mother’s Triumph Over Miscarriage; Jonathan McCullough’s A Tale Of Two Subs: An Untold Story Of World War II, Two Sister Ships, And Extraordinary Heroism; syndicated cartoonist Man Martin (Days of the Endless Corvette), and Edgar-winning mystery writer and host of Anatomy Of A Mystery, Rex Burns.
