She is looking to acquire books in any of those veins including literary fiction, historical fiction, commercial fiction (specifically, up-market women’s fiction, suspense, historical romance, paranormal romance), popular culture, narrative non-fiction, popular science, travel narrative, and anything and everything having to do with subcultures.
