Founded by publisher Yannaelle Boucher-Durand and author Jean-Pierre le Mat, Leor Literary Agency is a domestic & foreign rights agency based in France. From global rights coverage to professional counselling and editorial services, Leor Literary Agency, based in France, specializes in the sale and acquisition of translation rights for fiction, non-fiction, and children’s books on the behalf of a careful selection of independent French publishers.
We believe that the most original creations come from independent publishers. The ambition and high standards of publishing houses such as Locus Solus, Apogée, and la Pimpante have caught the eye of foreign publishers and prompted a deep interest in independent French press. Leor Literary Agency is proud to represent such a range of dynamic publishers and promote French culture overseas.
In addition to attending the Frankfurt and London book fairs, our team makes regular trips abroad to meet with publishers and ensures every client benefits from the highest possible level of care and professionalism. We make it our mission that every book can find its readers, no matter where they are.
