Lindsay represents a wide range of titles, including narrative nonfiction, memoir, lifestyle, and literary and commercial fiction. She is drawn to projects with strong narrators, obscure journeys, and political backbones, but she is an eclectic reader and will take on any project that she's passionate about.
Lindsay represents journalists, debut novelists, New Yorker cartoonists, Zen abbots, crafty sorts, sommeliers, and Japanophile bloggers, among many others. She loves to uncover new talent and to work with her clients to develop great proposals from the spark of an idea. Her authors have contributed to NPR's This American Life, written for the New York Times and many other publications, and have been on Oprah and The Daily Show. Writers who make her glad to be able to read include Sarah Vowell, John Updike, Ariel Levy, Anne Fadiman, and above all, E.M. Forster.
Lindsay graduated Phi Beta Kappa, summa cum laude from Barnard College, Columbia University where she edited The Columbia Review and worked with students to develop writing in the Writing Fellow program.
