Anna Sproul-Latimer

A part of the Ross Yoon team since 2005, she primarily represents adult nonfiction of all kinds, alongside some literary and commercial fiction and other genres (just ask).

What all of Anna's clients have in common is a kind of Schitt's Creek mood board sensibility: they're curious, funny, and tender, even in the face of some of life's biggest and most frightening challenges. She represents clients who complicate and detach us from our stubborn beliefs, freeing us to see one another more fully. She gravitates toward books that make Fleabag-style conspiratorial eye contact with us--"Yeah, I'm seeing this too. You're not alone or crazy." She also loves cemeteries, outer space, gross stuff, babies, and airplanes, just because.

Anna has sold multiple New York Times bestsellers, major book-to-film deals, and international translations in more than 50 languages. Her clients include Caitlin Doughty, author of the New York Times bestsellers Smoke Gets in Your Eyes and From Here to Eternity (Norton); Jayson Greene, author of Once More We Saw Stars (Knopf), which Amazon named the best memoir of the year so far in June 2019; New York magazine's Olivia Nuzzi, currently at work on a 2020 campaign book with Esquire's Ryan Lizza (Avid Reader Press/Simon and Schuster); Zoe Quinn, whose Crash Override (PublicAffairs) was optioned for film by Pascal Pictures/Sony; Kristina Kuzmic, whose Hold on But Don't Hold Still (Viking) is now available for preorder; R. Eric Thomas, whose memoir Here For It (Ballantine) comes out in February; and Washington Post columnist Alexandra Petri, whose next two books will be published by Norton; and many more.
