Harriet represents literary fiction, narrative non–fiction, illustrated non–fiction and poetry. She is looking for writing which has atmosphere, ambition, style and flair with a particular interest in books which are emotionally rigorous. She is drawn to voices which are precise and artful; writing which is both intimate and political; and women thinking hard about other women. In non–fiction she leans towards biographies and memoirs which have the texture of fiction, and work which crosses disciplines. Her areas of special interest are food, art and design.
