Welcome to Jacaranda Agency

Jacaranda is a boutique literary agency working out of Singapore, India, and the UK. We represent a diverse list of fiction and nonfiction from across Asia, and in particular a growing list of fiction from South East Asia. Our list includes authors from Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Taiwan. We also represent many authors from further afield, including from the US, UK, Kenya, and Australia, making us a truly international agency. More recently we have begun building a small, curated list of fiction in translation from South East Asia. We also represent a small number of translators.

The story shows how we can repress bad memories or fail to question explanations, there is a poignancy to its words, a deeper significance of the actions and body language. My review:
