Henry Dunow, Jennifer Carlson, and Betsy Lerner formed Dunow, Carlson & Lerner Literary Agency in 2005. We represent literary and commercial fiction, a wide range of nonfiction, and children's literature for all ages. The agency works with established networks of co-agents to represent translation rights in all foreign territories in addition to film, television, and audio rights.
While studying creative writing as an undergraduate at Sarah Lawrence College, I was lucky enough to intern at the Wendy Weil Agency. From there, I went on to agent and handle foreign rights at the Markson Thoma Agency. Now at DCL, I'm especially interested in fiction, with a soft spot for suspense and thrillers. I'm always on the lookout for bold voices, "unlikeable" narrators, prose that quickly draws me in, stories that linger. (Please note, I rarely take on YA or MG.) I grew up on an island and live in Brooklyn with my family.
