The latest client of the John Jarrold Literary Agency is author Thomas M Disch.

Disch has been a major name in fiction and non-fiction writing for over thirty years, with novels including Camp Concentration, 334, The MD, The Priest and many others, as well as non-fiction titles over a range of subjects from science fiction to the arts.

He is the author of the bestselling children's book The Brave Little Toaster, which was made into a classic animation by Disney, and its sequel The Brave Little Toaster Goes to Mars. He has also worked as a drama critic, art critic, playwright and painter, and is a poet of note.

'Tom Disch is a legend,' said John Jarrold. 'This is one of those times I can say, hand on heart, that I'm honoured to be working with an author. He has already spoken to me about a number of fascinating new projects, which I'll be discussing with UK publishers.'

Jarrold will be representing Disch's rights in the UK and Commonwealth markets.
