I also do rep some adult lit fic. For #MSWL, that's probably best expressed in comps. If you spent any time thinking about the structure/style of these (relatively) recent books while writing yours, I'd love a query: (cont'd)

Otherwise, in nonfiction: culture essays, sports (as long as it comes with a broader non-sport ramification), history, science, all those upmarket NF categories. #MSWL

Basically: if you're a lefty writer with a book idea and are dismayed that it's mostly just mainstream liberalism getting shelf space, I'd love to hear about what you're working on. #MSWL

First one is obvious (I hope): send me lefty stuff, please. Leftist critiques of culture, history, contemporary politics, policy, people, big ideas, grassroots movements, and the like. I would really love to see sharp, refreshing, truly progressive thinking and writing #MSWL

This extends to online stuff too. If you're a writer who loves Left or Weird Twitter as much as I do, and you think you've got a concept that those communities would love, please get in touch! Maybe we can develop it together and find a home for it. #MSWL

Happy #MSWL Day! I will add to this a bit throughout the day, but this will be an ongoing thread of themes, topics, categories, aesthetics, and other miscellany that I'd love to see in my inbox over the next few months. If this sounds like your project, get in touch!

So, I updated my website. If you're thinking of querying me (and I hope you are!), this page has a detailed description of things I like and what I'm looking for, in a #MSWL sort of way.

My queries have gotten way more to my taste since I did this, so I figured I'd post again! Here's my #MSWL page.
