Lisa Bankoff is a literary agent with the Bankoff Collaborative. Lisa has been a major force on the literary book scene for twenty years as an agent with ICM, her first four years spent assisting the late, great Jed Mattes. Prior to this she worked for several book publishers that included stints in production (teaching her respect for the heft of a given sheet of paper). Her experience rounded out with editorial, promotion/marketing, and publicity. Her current clients include Elizabeth Berg, Doug Brinkley, Claire Cook, John Colapinto, Chris Hedges, Laura Kasischke, J. Robert Lennon, David Lipsky, Ann Patchett, Mike Perry, Anne Roiphe, and Anne Ursu, nearly all of whom she has repped since book one. She loves literary fiction, but also craves “the vicarious excitement afforded by working on nonfiction with journalists,” the life she didn’t choose.
