Emily Wunderlich joined Viking in 2015. She acquires nonfiction in a range of categories, including narrative nonfiction, history and journalism, big idea, inspiration and business, popular science and literary nonfiction. She is particularly drawn to strong voices, fresh takes, and new arguments that recast our understanding of the world around us or even help us live better, and seeks to publish a multitude of underrepresented voices, perspectives, and experiences. She has been proud to publish bestselling, award-winning, and critically acclaimed books by Sonia Purnell, Sahaj Kaur Kohli, Jason De León, Mattie Kahn, Paco de Leon, Camilla Pang, Richard Overy, Erika Sánchez, Charlotte Alter, and Cal Flyn. She ran a nonfiction literary reading series in Manhattan called Big Umbrella, and prior to Viking, she worked at Gotham Books and Macmillan. She is a graduate of the University of Missouri and began her publishing career at The Missouri Review.
