Emily Wunderlich joined Viking in 2015. She acquires nonfiction in a range of categories, including narrative nonfiction, history and journalism, big idea, inspiration, business, 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, women’s issues, and social justice. She is focused on publishing a multitude of underrepresented voices, perspectives, and experiences. She has been proud to publish books by Sonia Purnell, Yancey Strickler, Camilla Pang, Mike Bayer, Charlotte Alter, Nick Pyenson, and Colin Dickey. 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.
