Patricia van der Leun
Literary Agency

The Patricia van der Leun Literary Agency is an independent agency committed to helping both new and established writers publish their work. Our tastes are wide-ranging: Since our founding in 1984, we have represented, among others, a quantum physicist, a Buddhist scholar, a Chinese dissident, a beauty guru, a top New York chef, an environmental activist, an architecture critic, and an Italian novelist. Our books have been featured on multiple national and international bestseller lists, and have been translated into dozens of languages.
