Legendary Literary Agent Deborah Rogers Dies

Posted at 7:18PM Thursday 01 May 2014

Deborah Rogers, the "legendary" literary agent to some of the most celebrated authors Britain has produced in the past 50 years, has died.

A statement from Rogers, Coleridge and White (RCW) confirmed the sudden death from a suspected heart attack of their "beloved colleague" who worked with writers from William Boyd and Salman Rushdie to Philip Roth, AS Byatt and Hanif Kureishi.

She received the lifetime achievement award at The London Book Fair last month, the first agent to be awarded the honour.
