ICM’s Amanda “Binky” Urban is the first book agent to be selected to receive the Maxwell E. Perkins Award for Distinguished Achievement in Fiction. The prize, created in 2005 by The Center For Fiction, is awarded to editors, publishers or agents who’ve championed and nurtured fiction authors. Urban has repped a long list of fiction writers that include Richard Ford, E.L. Doctorow, Anna Quindlen, Cormac McCarthy, Jay McInerney, Toni Morrison, David and Nic Sheff, E.B. White and Haruki Murakami. With her West Coast ICM counterpart Ron Bernstein, Urban has been involved in a slew of book-to-movie movie transfers that include the Oscar-winning No Country for Old Men. She’ll receive the award December 6 in New York City.
