Agence Michelle Lapautre

Literary agency

Representing mostly English-language publishers and agents for French-language rights, Michelle Lapautre Agency has been striving for the past fifty years to increase the presence of English-language authors in French-speaking countries.

The agency was founded in 1961 in New York by Georges Borchardt, in association with Michelle Lapautre based in Paris. In 1968, Michelle Lapautre Agency became fully independent. Michelle made it one of the most important French literary agencies. Her daughter Catherine Lapautre joined the agency in 1994 and took over its management after Michelle retired. Michelle, who passed away in January 2020, “contributed to raise the reputation of the profession, which is above all that of a ‘facilitator’” (Le Monde).
