Elisabeth Weed, partner
Elisabeth Weed began her publishing career at Curtis Brown in 1999. In 2007, Elisabeth opened her own agency, Weed Literary, where she began focusing primarily on upmarket fiction. She is especially attracted to plot-driven novels with a sense of place, and loves discovering new voices. Elisabeth is committed to working with authors not just on individual titles, but for the long term. Her clients' novels have appeared on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists as well as international bestseller lists around the globe. Elisabeth has a weakness for books that are unpredictable, atmospheric and suspenseful, and she is especially excited about thrillers with a fresh point of view, sweeping historical fiction from unlikely places, a great big love story, and novels that dive deep into the complexity of friendship.
Although she is a born and bred New Yorker, Elisabeth recently moved from the city to the suburbs with her husband and two children. Now that she finally has a normal sized kitchen, she has discovered her love of cooking, something she loves almost as much as reading a great novel in bed.
A few books she loves... My Sister the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite, The Great Believers by Rebecca Makkai, In the Woods by Tana French, When Will There Be Good News? by Kate Atkinson, Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarity, Bel Canto by Ann Patchett, and Enduring Love by Ian McEwan.
