Ed Maxwell is a literary agent with Greenburger Associates. He joined Greenburger Associates in 2011 to work with Faith Hamlin; in 2015 he started building a roster of clients whom he is very grateful to represent; and in summer 2019 he became a full-time agent.
A close reader of nonfiction, Ed is interested in how histories ripple across contemporary politics and present life. He is especially captivated by visual storytelling, whether by artists or documentary photographers, for child and adult readers alike, that seeks to break down any received notions that need toppling. Ed reads literary fiction as well, for adults and children, especially as a generation of writers rises to build an incorporative American canon.
