Molly Gregory has been with the Gallery team since 2016. Although Molly adores all kinds of books, she is particularly drawn to platformed and pop culture-driven essay collections, humor, celebrity, and narrative and issue-driven nonfiction that tap into the zeitgeist and that allow us to connect with ourselves and with each other. She also selectively acquires platform-drive cookbooks. On the fiction side, she is looking for commercial women’s and book club fiction, literary fiction with commercial appeal, character-driven romantic comedies, and—on the opposite end of the spectrum—book club reads with a twist of horror and upmarket thrillers a la Jodi Picoult’s Second Glance and Alice Sebold’s The Lovely Bones (she loves a good ghost story). She particularly enjoys projects with a strong voice and cosmopolitan themes or suburban settings, as well as novels that feature complicated relationships, sociocultural issues, dysfunctional families, messy heroines, and good people behaving badly (or bad people behaving terribly). Her eclectic list includes the New York Times bestsellers The Pasta Queen by Nadia Caterina Munno and Christmas in Peachtree Bluff by Kristy Woodson Harvey, Karamo by Queer Eye star Karamo Brown, and Shipped by Angie Hockman. Forthcoming titles include Emma of 83rd Street by Audrey Bellezza and Emily Harding, Under the Southern Sky by Kristy Woodson Harvey, and Under the Influence by Noelle Crooks.
