Galleycat has an interesting post today about the inventive method that one first-time author (Forbes reporter David Randall) used to choose the right agent for his book, Dreamland: Adventures in the Strange World of Sleep.
"I collected a bunch of books that I liked that had the same sensibility of the book I'm working on, and searched through the acknowledgments section to see who represented and edited them," explained Randall.
The rest of the interview with Randall is well worth reading. You can find it here.
