Take note that the great majority of successful agents are in a very small, high-rent area of NYC. There has to be a reason for that (access to the publishing industry). Also, note where they went to school. A lot of them are English Dept grads from east coast schools. Get the picture?
: : I've heard that literary agents outside of New York City are at a disadvantage. Is that true?
: "Best" is a subjective term, but they certainly do have more access to the centers of publishing power.
