Carina Guiterman is an Executive Editor at Simon & Schuster, where she acquires literary and upmarket fiction, as well as select narrative non-fiction, including memoirs and essay collections. Her taste in fiction spans many genres: domestic and psychological suspense, coming of age, family sagas, adventure stories, and more. She is always drawn to books that challenge the expected tropes of a genre and that combine captivating, smart prose with strong narrative momentum to pull the reader in and illuminate the contradictions and complexities hidden inside all of us. Some of the books Carina has acquired and edited at S&S include Florence Adler Swims Forever by Rachel Beanland, The House of Eve by Sadeqa Johnson,  The Girls Are All So Nice Here by Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, Revival Season by Monica West, The World Cannot Give by Tara Isabella Burton, The Helsinki Affair  by Anna Pitoniak, Everything’s Fine by Cecilia Rabess, Magpie by Elizabeth Day, and Mothers, Fathers, and Others by Siri Hustvedt.
