Done with the industry rage-tweets for now, I think. Trying to focus my work on finding and championing the stories in this amazing Danez Smith poem @alan_townsend just sent me. #mswl, people.…

Who, by the way, is going to write me the big, obvious nonfiction book on money and shame? Something Brene Brown-y or Jenny Odell-y or somewhere in between. Not a financial advice book as much as a look at what people's emotional realities are. #mswl

Listening to Steve Reich (thanks @TommyVierbuchen--this is amazing) is reminding me of my kookiest current #mswl: a TRICK MIRROR-like--fun! But brilliant! But crucially fun!--cultural crit book in appreciation of circularity and stasis in contemporary music/art/literature.

UGH this made me cry. I want to rep books with similar energy pls #MSWL…

My parameters on this #mswl, in case you're scanning the hashtag: it definitely would need to be nonfiction, and I am looking for an ending that's amazing on Earth as opposed to in the afterlife

Anna Sproul-Latimer @annasproul · 8 Mar 2018

Do you know what I would really love to read/rep? A Shawshank-like nonfiction story in which things seem like they're going to turn out horribly and then--twist!--everything turns out not just okay, but jump up and down amazing. #MSWL

This is maybe more one of my trademark weird fixations than a #mswl, but I am *obsessed* not just with Ursula LeGuin but with her entire family of origin, the Kroebers. They were all fascinating and funny and wildly ahead of their time and someone write me this book?!

Hey science writers: a book on skin hunger is now on my #mswl! Write it for me. (Your FB article posts are the greatest, @lesleykinzel)…

Having serious #MSWL moments watching @GlowNetflix. I'd kill for books populated by similarly lovable and 3-dimensional sadsacks.

#MSWL alert - I want your dystopian novel based on #fyrefestival. Sexy Lord of the Flies! Sign me up!

Not my book deal, but I LOVE this kind of narrative science - send it to me! (And you best believe I will bug Grace for a galley) #mswl

My #MSWL: nonfiction that undoes and expands me. Anna at rossyoon dot com.

Curmudgeon books will eternally be at the top of my #mswl. If you have a national platform and hate cutesy platitudes and memes, come at me.

This DC-based agent would LOVE to represent an evocative history of Ezra Pound's years at St. Elizabeth's. #MSWL
