Hannah Wood, Editor, came to Harper after almost four years at Doubleday, where she worked with authors such as Bill Bryson and Hanya Yanagihara. She looks for literary, voice-driven fiction with a compelling premise, characters that come alive, and an intensity of feeling and imagination. Her nonfiction taste skews towards upmarket narrative nonfiction—biography, memoir, and true crime (historical and contemporary). Recent/forthcoming titles include memoir The Year of Reading Dangerously, a national bestseller; critically acclaimed debut novel An Innocent Fashion; non-fiction titles including Not Just Jane: Rediscovering Seven Amazing Women Writers Who Transformed British Literature and Illusion of Justice: Inside Making A Murderer and America’s Broken System; and biographies of Camilla Parker-Bowles and William Fox. She also received the 2015 Ashmead Award, established in honor of former Harper editor Larry Ashmead to nurture the career of a promising young editor in the field of book publishing, and attended the 2015 Yale Publishing Course.
