An Agent Of Political Change

“Sandy Dijsktra has been called an über agent as much for the passion she brings to her projects as for the authors she represents. Apparently her passion also extends to politics.” A recent e-mail sent to all her clients announced that she will not be sending out a holiday card this year, so that she can put the money it would cost towards supporting presidential candidate John Kerry. And while it may not be a surprise that a Californian working in the arts industry would be supporting a Democrat, Dijkstra has certainly taken an unusual step, particularly for an agent who has a predilection for “recruiting authors from the ranks of journalists.”
