Nonfiction: books about food (always!), travel, history, art, and culture. I love to see projects that show the intersections of these topics. For instance, I'd love to see one on food deserts in America and how they disproportionately affect minority communities. #mswl

I'm also always interested in deep dives into particular subjects. Think quirky like Mary Roach or food-related like Mark Kurlansky. #mswl

In narrative nonfiction: Books about food, material culture, art, literature, and history always top the list, and I'm particularly interested in projects that explore how many of these topics intersect with race, gender, and politics. #mswl

Your semi-regular reminder that I am always interested in stories about food, be they fiction or nonfiction. #MSWL

In narrative nonfiction, I'd love to see more food-centered books, especially those exploring forgotten aspects of our food history or that look at the intersections of race, feminism, and food. Think THE COOKING GENE or WHAT SHE ATE.

Who's up for some Friday afternoon #mswl tweets? Here are some specific things I'll be looking for at BookEnds!

As a general reminder, I rep adult romance, mystery, women's, and upmarket fiction, and have a deep and abiding love for historical fiction across all genres. I also rep narrative nonfiction, especially on topics like the literary world, food, material culture, & social history.

If you have a NF project that looks at forgotten history of food in this way, I will always want to see it. #MSWL

Food writing, especially that which looks at the merging of food cultures or explores forgotten aspects, histories, etc. #mswl

Think Collingham's CURRY, Twitty's THE COOKING GENE, or Lundy's VICTUALS. #mswl 2/2

Still closed to queries, but special exception for food writing that explores forgotten histories, merging of food cultures, etc. #mswl 1/2
