Danielle Svetcov wrote for the New York Times, U.S. News & World Report, Forbes, and the Chicago Tribune Magazine before joining LGR in 2002.
Trained as a journalist, raised as a ham, she vacillates between the grave and the absurd, which is reflected in the books she chooses to represent. Among them: Deep: Freediving, Renegade Science, and What the Ocean Tells Us About Ourselves; Skymaul: Happy Crap You Can Buy From A Plane; You Only Get Letters From Jail: Short Stories; Half Baked: The Story of My Nerves, My Newborn, and How We Both Learned to Breathe; The Literate Garden; The Enlightened Cyclist: Commuter Angst, Dangerous Drivers, and Other Obstacles on the Path to Two-Wheeled Transcendence; Dollars & Sex: How Economics Influences Sex and Love; and Yoga Bitch: One Woman's Quest to Conquer Skepticism, Cynicism, and Cigarettes on the Path to Enlightenment.
And, in pursuit of sustenance to fuel her reading, she represents an incredible stable of chefs, restaurateurs, and food/ag-thinkers, including: Bryant Terry (Afro-Vegan), Thomas McNaughton (flour + water), Tanya Holland (Brown Sugar Kitchen), Russell Moore and Allison Hopelain (Camino), Ellen Kanner (Feeding the Hungry Ghost), Karen Solomon (Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It), Adrianna Adarme (The Year of Cozy), Tara Austen Weaver (The Butcher and the Vegetarian), Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinski (State Bird Provisions), and Celia Sack (The Omnivore’s Keeper), among others.
She is in the agency’s California office. You can read more about her here.
