This might be interesting.

If you could choose a literary agency to represent you, who would it be?
If you know the agent within the agency who you would like to have represent you, who is it?

Barbara Poelle at Irene Goodman. But I'm doing all I can for that, and we'll see what happens.

I'm not at the agent finding stage yet, but dream-wise I'd love to be represented by anyone at Writers House.

Partially just to get inside that building. It looks so pretty.

ANYONE who is 100% committed to selling me.

That said...

UTA
Brant & Hochman
William Morris

In that order.

Ethan Ellenberg. He doesn't list my genre as what he's seeking, but he's sold more novels in this genre to more 'name' publishers than anybody else. Which is why my query letter has to be better.

Maryn, stalled

I don't want to hurt any agent's feelings by not naming him or her, so I'll just move along now. ;)

Joshua Bilmes, Ethan Ellenberg, or Rachel Vater.

Winner.

Garth Stein's first agent passed on The Art of Racing in the Rain. (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0061537934/ref=s9subs_c3_at2-rfc_g1-2991_g1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=13573NH156MYW4H8YQD3&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=278240301&pf_rd_i=507846) He ended up with a new agent that believed in the book and sold it for $1.2 million––it's the new Starbucks book selection. Enthusiasm goes a long way...

My dream agengy, unfortanately, might have to stay a dream. You see, I write short stories. I'd kind of like being my own agent though.
