Curtis Brown Literary Agency is a literary and talent agency, founded in 1899 by Albert Curtis Brown.
An American journalist who was the London correspondent for The New York Press, Albert was instrumental in establishing the reputations of British and American writers, including John Steinbeck, William Faulkner, Lawrence Durrell, AA Milne and Kingsley Amis. These days we represent authors such as Margaret Atwood, Rosamund Lupton, Malala Yousafzai, Jojo Moyes, Winston Churchill, Marian Keyes, John le Carré, David Mitchell and David Nicholls, to name but a few. In March 2013 we joined with leading literary agency, Conville & Walsh.
Together we have always been committed to finding the very best new literary talent, and this is where the Curtis Brown Book Group comes in. Every month our readers will be sent a selection of our new books to review, and will be invited to take part in an exclusive online book group session with the author. You can apply by writing to us at the email address below and telling us why you’d like to be a member (applications for the second half of 2015 close June 19th, and will reopen towards the end of the year for the first half of 2016).
