Fabulous Fiction Firsts #43

Debra Ginsberg, commentator on NPR’s All Things Considered and the author of three books of memoirs, tries her hands at fiction.

Blind Submission revolves around Angel, a young woman with a passion for books who becomes the assistant to a famously demanding San Francisco literary agent and quickly finds herself overwhelmed in the maelstrom of the office.

Angel has a knack for turning mediocre manuscripts into moneymakers but when an
anonymous email submission takes on alarming similarities to the intimate details of her personal life and carries thinly veiled threats, Angel learns the lengths to which writers - and agents - will go to get a book deal.

“An affectionate skewering of the ludicrous side of the book business and a claws-out send-up of the perversities of power, Ginsberg's blithe blend of mystery, romance, and satire is smart, classy, and fun”. Starred review Booklist.
