Before becoming an agent in 2016 JULIA SILK was an editor for 15 years, latterly at The Orion Publishing Group, where she worked for nine years. She has an MA in Comparative Literature from UEA and loves to read stories that expose universal truths in new ways. She has broad-ranging taste and welcomes submissions of fiction across the spectrum from commercial to literary, particularly when they feature unpredictable characters making unexpected choices.
As well as narrative non-fiction/memoir, Julia is interested in seeing proposals for books in smart-thinking, parenting, health, lifestyle, fashion and beauty from experts and journalists.
Her favourite recent reads include Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan, The Dry by Jane Harper and Lullaby by Leila Slimani.
