Sulamita Garbuz joined Trident Media Group in 2016, after working as an assistant fiction editor at Narrative Magazine. She is a graduate of Swarthmore College and worked for the US Attorney’s Office and several labor unions before entering publishing. She is fluent in English and Russian, and speaks conversational Ukrainian and French.
In addition to assisting Robert Gottlieb, chairman of the agency, Sulamita is also growing her own list of authors. She is drawn to a range of upmarket and literary fiction, and is especially excited by novels that use speculative or dreamlike elements to explore current social dynamics, stories of obsession and women misbehaving, and narratives about the immigrant experience. In nonfiction, she is interested in books about religious communities and cults, the intersection of technology and psychology, dating culture, and popular science.
