Lucy’s list at Curtis Brown comprises commercial and reading group fiction, and narrative non-fiction of all stripes. In fiction, she looks for books with heart and humour, brilliant social observation and clever storytelling. In terms of non-fiction her tastes are fairly broad, but she is always drawn to memoir, the professional and the personal, beautifully written stories told with wit, warmth and precision.
