Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0140268731, Paperback)

"An agent," says Joe Regal (who is one), "is one-third lawyer, one-third editor and one-third schmoozer, with a little bit of psychologist thrown in." In addition to providing annotated listings for 120 of the 290 agencies that are members of the Association of Authors' Representatives (in which some agencies even admit to accepting queries by telephone!), this fifth edition of Literary Agents contains up-to-date information about the role of the literary agent in a writer's life. Author Debby Mayer cautions that it can be as difficult to sign on with an agent as with a publisher, but she also warns writers not to jump at just any offer. "A bad agent can be worse than no agent," she says. To help you find an effective agent, Mayer provides a list of questions to ask potential agents, a sample agent-writer agreement, information about how to approach agents, and examples of the many different roles agents can assume in a writer's life. Most interesting here are Mayer's interviews with a handful of agents, all of whom--lest we forget--got into the business in the first place for the love of reading. --Jane Steinberg
