Eric Simonoff heads to WMA

Janklow director named senior VP of agency

WMA has hired Eric Simonoff, a longtime literary agent and co-director of Janklow & Nesbit.

The move shakes up the Gotham publishing landscape. Simonoff, who’d been with Janklow & Nesbit since 1991, comes to WMA as a senior vice president.

WMA book division co-heads Jennifer Rudolph Walsh and Suzanne Gluck made the hire.

Simonoff brings a lengthy list of writers that includes three Pulitzer Prize winners, 17 authors who’ve cracked the New York Times bestseller lists and 14 contributors to the New Yorker.

“We look forward to collaborating with Eric and his clients on both their core business and the wide range of opportunities across all divisions of our company,” said WMA chairman-CEO Jim Wiatt.

Simonoff’s author clients range from Bill O’Reilly (“A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity”) to Pulitzer Prize- winning authors Jhumpa Lahiri (“Unaccustomed Earth”), Edward P. Jones (“The Known World”) and Stacy Schiff (“Cleopatra”). He also reps bestselling authors Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child (“Relic”), Norah Vincent (“Self Made Man”), Ben Mezrich (“Bringing Down the House”) and James Frey (“Bright Shiny Morning,” “A Million Little Pieces”).
