We are pleased to announce that Dystel & Goderich Literary Management is now Dystel, Goderich & Bourret LLC. Jane Dystel and Miriam Goderich are thrilled to welcome Michael Bourret as a partner in the agency.
Michael joined the agency first as intern in 2000, later becoming an assistant to Jane, then director of subsidiary rights, and eventually a vice president. In 2009, he opened the agency’s West Coast office in Los Angeles, where he developed closer ties to the film business while growing and cultivating his own list of bestselling and award-winning clients.
Though our name is changing, we want you, our clients and readers, to know that things will very much remain the same. We will continue to passionately represent a wide variety of stellar authors and works, from serious non-fiction and literary and commercial fiction, to children’s and young adult books. We’re actively on the lookout for new voices, and you can take a look at our staff page to see what each of our agents is currently pursuing. As we evolve as an agency, we look forward to maintaining our ties to our cherished clients and to establishing exciting new relationships.
