Folio Literary Management

A rising agent at Folio Literary Management, Sonali is looking for character-driven upmarket and literary fiction. In particular, she’s drawn to smart women’s fiction; quirky, heartfelt family stories; nuanced psychological mysteries; and rich, atmospheric historical projects with a touch of magical realism. On the nonfiction side, she gravitates towards narrative nonfiction — particularly anything with a strong social justice bent — as well as essay collections and memoirs that speak to larger societal concerns. In Young Adult, she’s looking for contemporary realistic fiction that blends heart and humor, as well as the occasional dystopian or fantasy project (with a soft spot for myth, fairytale, and folklore retellings). Across the board, she’s especially interested in working with underrepresented voices.
