On today’s episode of Speaking Broadly, Andy McNicol gives us an inside look at the life of a book agent. A partner in the literary department at William Morris Endeavor, McNicol puts together deals for some of the biggest cookbook authors around such as Alex Guarnaschelli, and more recently, Chrissy Teigen. She describes her job as that of a train conductor, always heading in a clear direction at maximum velocity. For more lessons on getting an agent, a deal, or simply ahead in a fast paced world, tune in.
