Our Rights Department

I can't imagine that there is a better, more perceptive, or more committed rights section than Darley Anderson's in any literary agency anywhere

John Connolly

The Rights department has done much more for my books than I ever knew was possible. It's like having a bunch of fairy godmothers who regularly drop wonderful exotic presents into your inbox: 'Good morning! Here's Croatia!'

Tana French

The Darley Anderson Agency sells foreign rights faster and further than anyone in the business. I'm published in countries some agents have never even heard of

Lee Child

The most commercially minded agency in London

Our UK literary agents have a long history of producing commercial success for our authors in a broad variety of genres. Many of our writers are among the highest-paid, bestselling authors in the world.
