James Farrell

Curtis Brown, Ltd.

James Farrell received a bachelor’s degree from Colorado College and a master’s degree from Bath Spa University. He is looking for literary fiction with a propulsive plot and deeply flawed characters. He is open to speculative twists, as long as the stories revolve around human conflicts. In non-fiction, James is looking for personal narratives that open onto larger contemporary social issues through literary and cultural criticism. In all of the above, he's looking for new narratives from underrepresented voices.
