He has scouted, read and reported on upwards of 500 manuscripts, nearly all of which have been published, many of which went on to become NYT bestsellers and translated across the world. Some have been acquired for adaptation into film and TV. His favorite scouted book thus far has been INTERIOR CHINATOWN by Charles Yu, which went on to win the National Book Award and is in development as a series with Hulu.
