Andrew Wylie is arguably one of the threeÂ most influential literary agents in the business. And he prefers to keep a low profile so you ain’t gonna see him popping up on a panel at theÂ Serial Killer RomanceÂ Writers of Greater Tupelo Mississippi Area Book Conference anytime soon.Â However, he did grant a rare interview to French media outlet Le Monde. And Mark at The Elegant VariationÂ was kind enough to translate the piece for us.
“if thereâ€™s anything Iâ€™ll be proud of at the end of my life, itâ€™s that Iâ€™ve had success putting Philip Roth, Martin Amis and some others out front in place of Danielle Steel, Tom Clancy and others,” Wylie says.
This interview is required reading for all aspiring authors.
