Lit agent to bring Lehane, DeLillo from Gersh

Amy Schiffman has left the Gersh Agency to become a partner at Intellectual Property Group.

Schiffman, who was VP of books and literary properties at Gersh, joins IPG partners Joel Gotler, Jerry Kalajian and Larry Becsey. She expects to bring such author clients as Dennis Lehane, Don DeLillo, Jane Heller and David Zucchino and screenwriters Angus MacLachlan and Michael Golding.

IPG’s existing roster includes Paul Haggis, Andy Davis, James Ellroy, Michael Connelly, Richard Russo, James Lee Burke, Sue Grafton, Yann Martel and Carol Shields.

Schiffman moved to Gersh after a long run as head of the book to film department at William Morris.”My point of entry into the film world has always been the written world,” Schiffman said. “I’ve chosen to work with people who specialize in translating great words into great film and television.”
