MORE THAN JUST AN AGENCY
As one of the oldest literary agencies in Europe, Eulama has been a pioneer in representing authors and bringing genre redefining titles to market.
We are proud to be keeping this spirit alive after more than 50 years and to help authors, publishers and editors with a team that can handle the business and the creative side of the publishing business.
A PROUD HISTORY
Founded in 1962, Eulama is one of the most storied literary agencies in the world, representing some iconic books of the 20th Century.
So far we have had the privilege to represent and assist authors such as Leonardo Benevolo, Norberto Bobbio, Jane Bowles, Elias Canetti, Robert Dahl, Umberto Eco, Paul Feyerabend, Vilém Flusser, Dario Fo, László Földenyi, Nelson Goodman, Romano Guardini, Agnes Heller, Anna Kavan, Jacques Le Goff, Karl Löwith, Alberto Moravia, Bruno Munari and Ludwig Wittgenstein. Nevertheless we feel like we are still just getting warmed-up.
To this day we combine a mission to carry this legacy into the future with a passion for managing a writer's career with an integrated understanding of how storytelling works.

Eulama’s mission is to form true partnerships with clients and build long-term relationships that extend through the length of the books' life/the author’s career.
We believe that knowledge about the world should be shared with readers around the world. In service of that mission, we represent books that entertain and instruct. Books for the young and the adults, literature as well as the sciences, history, philosophy, and other areas of non-fiction.
Our goal is to maximize the value of our clients’ work in familiarizing broader and global readerships with the finest voices from the European region and the other way around, bridging cultures and stimulating interest in the accomplishments of the human mind in their diversity.
