Random's Carter to turn agent
14.12.11 | James Waldron
Random House editor-at-large Rebecca Carter is to join Janklow & Nesbit as an agent.
After 15 years at Random House, where she published authors including Gerard Woodward and Irène Némirovsky, Carter will take up her new role at Janklow & Nesbit's London office in March 2012.
Carter said: “I have been extremely fortunate to work with so many wonderfully supportive and creative people at Random House over the last 15 years. The chance to join an agency like Janklow & Nesbit was too good to pass up, especially at a time when changes in the industry are creating challenges as to how best to steer an author’s career.”
Morton Janklow, a partner at Janklow & Nesbit, added: “We are thrilled to have Rebecca join our strong UK team. She brings her vast experience as an editor of taste and imagination and is the perfect addition to our group in London.”
While at Random House, Carter oversaw the publication of prize-winning British novelists Gerard Woodward and Diana Evans, as well as translations of the Chinese novelist Ma Jian and Irène Némirovsky’s Suite Française. In 2007 she was shortlisted for the Kim Scott Walwyn prize for women in publishing.
More recently she has worked on the Harvill Secker imprint, where she published Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus earlier this year.
