Granger takes on projects with the potential to leave a mark. He, along with Todd Shuster, worked with former deputy director of the FBI Andrew McCabe on his #1 New York Times bestseller, The Threat. More recently, he and Laura Nolan represented Hunter Biden on his memoir, Beautiful Things, which debuted at #4 on the NYT list. Granger is especially proud of having worked with Julie Yip-Williams to bring her The Unwinding of the Miracle (a #6 NYT bestseller) into the world. It is currently being adapted for the screen. He has also helped Senator Jeff Flake, business legend Arthur Blank, and young activists David and Lauren Hogg with bestsellers that shaped the national conversation.
Granger was the editor-in-chief of Esquire magazine for 19 years, from 1997 until 2016. During his tenure, the magazine won 17 National Magazine Awards and Granger was the industry’s editor of the year on three separate occasions. He was inducted into the Magazine Hall of Fame in 2020. In 2014, he was awarded the Missouri Honor Medal from the University of Missouri for his contributions to journalism. He has a BA from the University of Tennessee and an MA from the University of Virginia.
Based in New York, Granger represents primarily non-fiction and is obsessed with topics across an extremely wide spectrum—politics, food culture, actual innovation in design, tech and science; fame. What binds these things is a yen for intensely original ideas and writing that pushes boundaries to a breaking point.
