    Reiko Davis is an agent at Miriam Altshuler Literary Agency. She grew up in Kansas City, MO, received her BA in Comparative Literature and Art History from Brown University, and is a graduate of the Columbia Publishing Course. Above all, she wants to discover books that surprise her and make her feel something. She’s looking for well written, vivid, voice-driven books, in the adult, young adult, middle grade, and narrative nonfiction categories. In fiction, she loves beautiful writing, but a book always has to have a compelling story to draw her in. She’s interested in both literary and commercial fiction. She loves a strong narrative voice, smart, funny heroines, narrowly located settings (especially towns in the South and Midwest), and stories that cross borders (in culture, geography, or tradition). In children’s books, she is actively looking for young adult and middle grade fiction—whether it be contemporary, historical, high fantasy, or simply a story with a timeless quality and vibrant characters. For nonfiction, she has a particular interest in pop culture, women’s issues, psychology, narrative science, and honest, humorous, unflinching memoir.
