        Agent, The

Agent, The

If you can't live, write; if you can't write, be a publisher; if you can't be a publisher, be a literary agent; and if you can't be a literary agent, God help you.' Colin Haycraft. It's just another day at the office for a high-flying literary agent Alexander. Phone calls to be returned, deals to be finalised, celebrity clients to be taken out to lunch. . . and just one quick meeting to get through with an author whose latest book the agent thinks is, frankly, not up to scratch. Martin Wagner's gripping and often bitingly funny two-hander about a writer's struggle for good representation perfectly reveals the subtle shifts in power in the relationship between artist and agent. As every minute passes and the tables continue to turn, the only thing we can be sure of is that there can only be one winner.
