Karp's New Hire: Anjali Singh

Jonathan Karp has made another addition to his editorial team at Simon & Schuster: Anjali Singh, who will be joining the imprint September 20th as a senior editor.

“At S&S, Anjali will be casting a wide net for all kinds of nonfiction and fiction — literary, graphic, and commercial,” wrote Karp in an announcement sent out today. He cited her “eye for great writing and her passion for original stories.”

Karp’s other recent hires were Ben Loehnen and Jofie Ferrari-Adler, both non-fiction editors, so Singh seems to fill a hole in his lineup.

Singh started her career as a literary scout for Mary Anne Thompson, then served as an editor at Vintage, where she worked on books like Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Half of a Yellow Sun. Most recently, she was at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, where her recent titles included Samantha Hunt’s The Invention of Eerything Else, Brigid Pasulka’s A Long, Long Time Ago and Essentially True, and Zoe Ferraris’ Finding Nouf.
