Lauren E. Abramo joined Dystel, Goderich & Bourret in 2005 after receiving degrees in English at New York University and Irish Studies at National University of Ireland Galway. As vice president and subsidiary rights director for the agency, she sells foreign and audio rights, and she also maintains a small client list. Her interests include humorous middle-grade and contemporary young adult on the children’s side and upmarket commercial fiction and well-paced literary fiction on the adult side. She’s also interested in adult narrative nonfiction, especially pop culture, psychology, pop science, reportage, media and contemporary culture, with a strong focus on books about social justice. In nonfiction she has a strong preference for interdisciplinary approaches, and in all categories she’s especially interested in underrepresented voices. Born in New York City and raised not far outside it, she now lives in Brooklyn.
