Markus Hoffmann

Regal Hoffmann & Associates LLC

Markus Hoffmann joined Regal Literary, Inc. in 2006 and was made a partner in the agency in 2014, when it became Regal Hoffmann & Associates LLC. He studied English and Russian literature and linguistics in Munich, Moscow, and at Hertford College, Oxford, and started his career in publishing in London in the late 90s before relocating to New York City in 2004. He still betrays his transatlantic allegiance by insisting on the proper pronunciation of the words basil, tomato, and herb (among others). If he ever writes a book, it will be called WHY PUNS MATTER. His main interests as an agent are international and literary fiction, unusual speculative fiction, crime, literary memoir, philosophy, history, music, popular science, and travel literature. He also looks after the agency’s foreign rights. He's obsessed with surfing and capoeira and plays the trumpet for the most famous (and only) jazz combo on the international publishing circuit.
