David Granger is a literary agent with Aevitas Creative Management. Granger takes on projects with the potential to leave a mark. He, along with Todd Shuster, worked with former deputy director of the FBI Andrew McCabe on his #1 New York Times bestseller The Threat. Granger is especially proud of having worked with Julie Yip-Williams to bring her The Unwinding of the Miracle (a #6 NYT bestseller) into the world. He also helped Senator Jeff Flake and the young activists David and Lauren Hogg find readerships for books that shaped the national conversation.
Granger was the editor-in-chief of Esquire magazine for 19 years, from 1997 until 2016. During his tenure, the magazine won 17 National Magazine Awards and Granger was the industry’s editor of the year on three separate occasions. He was awarded the Missouri Honor Medal from the University of Missouri in 2014 for his contributions to journalism. He has a BA from the University of Tennessee and an MA from the University of Virginia.
Based in New York, Granger represents primarily non-fiction and is obsessed with topics across an extremely wide spectrum—politics; food culture; actual innovation in design, tech and science; fame. What binds these things is a yen for intensely original ideas and writing that pushes boundaries.
