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

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeHow awesome does this book sound?!
"Codename: Badass, How Virginia Hall Became America's Greatest Female Spy by Outwitting the Nazis, Helping to Build the French Resistance… and Falling in Love Behind Enemy Lines by Heather Demetrios." us1.campaign-archive.com/?u=d684790bedf…
It's a YA biography! This is my #MSWL for Non-fiction.
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.
Amanda Jain @wensday95Who'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.
AGENTS! I am on the hunt (picture me stalking manuscripts with a spear) for great nonfiction. Memoir, personal development/self-help, high-level prescriptive & narrative nonfic. I love writers like @gretchenrubin, @lvanderkam, @mary_roach. Contact: sourcebooks.com/anna-michels.h… #MSWL
