WordSmitten :: About the Books

Kate Sullivan interviews Pulitzer Prize-winning authors, debut novelists, publishers, and editors. In this segment, Kate interviews Manhattan literary agent Harvey Klinger who talks about his relationships with acquisition editors, clients, and his former boss. He began his publishing career at Doubleday. Instead, he left and worked for a literary agent for eighteen months and began forming his first client list. A two-year stint followed in association with an independent publicist. Harvey created his own independent operation in October, 1977. Harvey Klinger received his M.A. in The Writing Seminars at Johns Hopkins University. Tune in to the fun. 

Recent guests include Johnny Temple (Brooklyn's Akashic Books noted for Go the F*** to Sleep), Tom Robbins (Tibetan Peach Pie), and Dani Shapiro (Still Writing). 

Pulitzer Prize winning authors Gilbert King (Devil in the Grove), Elizabeth Strout (Olive Kitteridge), Geraldine Brooks (March), and Edward P. Jones (The Known World) have appeared on the About the Books broadcast.

The host and producer of the broadcast is Kate Sullivan, journalist, editor, publisher, and creative writing instructor with WordSmitten Media, Inc. in the seaside town of St. Petersburg, Florida.
