Lindsay Edgecombe

Agent

Lindsay represents a wide range of titles, including narrative nonfiction, memoir, lifestyle and health, illustrated books, and literary fiction.  She is drawn to projects with strong narrators, obscure journeys, and political backbones, but she is an eclectic reader and will take on any project that she's passionate about.

Lindsay represents journalists, scientists, internationally best-selling novelists as well as debut novelists, New Yorker cartoonists, and bloggers, among many others.  She loves to uncover new talent and to work with her clients to develop great proposals from the spark of an idea.  Her authors have contributed to NPR's "This American Life," written for the New York Times and many other publications, and have been on Oprah and The Daily Show.

Lindsay graduated Phi Beta Kappa, summa cum laude from Barnard College, Columbia University where she edited The Columbia Review.
