Literary Agents: How to Get and Work with the Right One for You

Michael Larsen, Author Writer's Digest Books $9.95 (135p) ISBN 978-0-89879-213-3
Addressed mainly to the inexperienced writer, this succinct, straightforward guide contains basic information on what literary agents do, how they operate, how they can be helpful, how to select one and submit a proposal or manuscript, as well as advice on advances, subsidiary rights, royalties, etc. Editors and other publishing professionals may also find the material useful; and they will enjoy the two chapters on a terrible day and a terrific day in the life of an agent, even though many of them will groan in exasperation at the ""cute'' punning section titles. Larsen is a San Francisco agent. (February 20)
