Agents have taken on some responsibilities previously in the hands of publishers, such as receiving manuscripts and publishing works, as well as the traditional tasks of the bookseller, such as reader contact, not forgetting the promotion of books and authors. Today, with their new skills and competences, what exactly is a literary agent, and what do they do?
