Katherine Fausset is an agent with Curtis Brown, Ltd, where she represents fiction and non-fiction. Notable and/or recent books by her clients include Lucia Berlin’s A Manual for Cleaning Women; Emily St. John Mandel’s Station Eleven; Benjamin Percy’s craft book Thrill Me; Kelly Luce’s Pull Me Under; Lisa Brackmann’s The Go-Between; Ioan Grillo’s Gangster Warlords; Laura van Den Berg’s Find Me; Brodi Ashton’s, Cynthia Hand’s and Jodi Meadows’ My Lady Jane; Moustafa Bayoumi’s How Does it Feel to be a Problem?; Elise Juska’s The Blessings; and Cara Black’s Murder on the Quai.
Katherine received her B.A. in English and American Literature and Language from Harvard University. And back when she was a twenty-something who didn’t think twice about being photographed in a pirate costume for a cookbook, she co-authored The Cooking Club Cookbook and The Cooking Club Party Cookbook.
She is drawn to non-fiction that broadens our understanding of the world, and to fiction set in foreign countries, plots involving knotty family dynamics, lyrical prose, the dark, the strange, the humorous and various combinations thereof.
A longtime resident of New York City, she recently relocated with her family to New Orleans.
