Philip Gwyn Jones joins Greyhound as agent

We're proud to announce that Philip Gwyn Jones has joined Greyhound as an agent. 

After thirty-three years as an editor and publisher, just over half of them in corporate publishing, just under half in independent publishing, Philip has made the switch to agenting in order to get back to close-quarters work with writers and thinkers developing their ideas, their texts, their careers, and defending their interests. 

He was the first British publisher to have spotted the originality in and offered a contract to Patrick Ness, Jenny Erpenbeck, Julian Gough, Jhumpa Lahiri, Kathryn Schulz, Magnus Mills, Naomi Klein, Ben Marcus, Mark Lynas, Azadeh Moaveni, Gavin McCrea, Anthony Doerr, Eleanor Catton, Karl Ove Knausgaard and Anna Burns, amongst others. As an agent, he is looking for their equals in invention and impact.
