Lily Dolin, United Talent Agency
Thank you for your interest in UTA! I acquire both fiction and nonfiction, but am specifically seeking novels at this time. In fiction, I am drawn to dark and offbeat humor, gripping narratives, strong commercial hooks, family dynamics, and nuanced female perspectives. Think Mona Awad, Alexandra Kleeman, or Halle Butler. I will also consider select short story collections. In nonfiction, I am interested in memoirs that are funny, outrageous, shocking, emotional, or all of the above. I also enjoy true crime, pop culture, and narrative history. I'm not looking for historical fiction or science/psychology nonfiction at this time. Please note that due to the volume of submissions, I am unable to respond to every query. If I am interested in discussing your work further, I will be in touch, usually within 4--6 weeks!
