Jody Kahn

Brandt & Hochman

Jody represents both literary and upmarket fiction, as well as narrative nonfiction; across all categories she enjoys books that are beautifully written while also containing a rich storyline, and she’s especially looking for deeply drawn characters and voice-driven narratives. Humor is always a plus. She’s also interested in untold stories, misunderstood populations, and anything that’s plugged into the current cultural conversation. In nonfiction, she’s seeking narratives related to culture, social justice, sports, food, history, literary memoir and journalism. Above all, she wants to be gripped by what she’s reading and taken into a new and riveting world, one that touches her with layers of complexity and does not easily let go. Query by email only.
