Rebecca Gradinger is a literary agent with Fletcher & Company Literary Agency. Rebecca joined Fletcher & Company in 2009 after previously working as an agent at Janklow & Nesbit Associates. Prior to that she was a foreign literary scout at Mary Anne Thompson Associates, a lawyer, practicing media and intellectual property law, at Frankfurt Garbus Klein & Selz, and, in a previous life, a road manager for the MTV comedy troupe, The State.
Rebecca has eclectic taste in the books that she represents but a common thread in almost all of her projects is a strong emotional core. She is interested in projects that fall into the following categories: literary fiction, upmarket commercial fiction, narrative non-fiction, self-help, memoir, humor, and pop culture. Rebecca’s particular areas of interest are: fiction that is simply impossible to stop reading (and if it makes you weep, all the better!) and memoir that takes you into unfamiliar worlds or deals with everyday concerns with particular insight and/or humor.
Rebecca works closely and creatively with her clients from the editorial stage to development and strategy for taking advantage of multi-platform possibilities including film/tv development.Some of Rebecca’s recent clients include Dr. Pauline Chen New York Times columnist and author of the New York Times bestseller FINAL EXAM: A Surgeon’s Reflections on Mortality (Knopf), Stephanie Dolgoff’s MY FORMERLY HOT LIFE (Ballantine), Kathleen Grissom’s THE KITCHEN HOUSE (S&S), Dr. Robin Zasio’s THE HOARDER IN YOU (Rodale), Maggie Shipstead’s SEATING ARRANGEMENTS (Knopf 2012), Keija Parssinen’s THE RUINS OF US (Harper Perennial), D.G Fulford’s DESIGNATED DAUGHTER (Hyperion), and Lilit Marcus’ SAVE THE ASSISTANTS (Hyperion).
Rebecca holds a BA from Barnard College and a JD from George Washington University Law Center. She is originally from Montreal, Canada and is the proud mother of two “spirited” little girls.
