Martha Wydysh Literary Agent is drawn to contemporary novels that are emotionally and psychologically acute, and not necessarily plot-centric. She has a soft spot for slightly speculative and satirical works that question the status quo here in the U.S. and abroad, and gravitates toward anything that verges on the obsessive, absurd, or humorous. She has a particular love of short fiction, especially linked collections or novels-in-stories that transport and immerse readers in an unfamiliar place. In addition to working closely with her authors on their book projects, she views their careers holistically and loves helping them place short stories and essays. She is proud to have placed their work with such publications as McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern, Gulf Coast, The Paris Review, The Atlantic, Granta, The Southern Review, and Guernica. Her clients have won the O. Henry Prize and have been included in The Best American Short Stories anthologies.
