Watson, Little Prize: Upmarket Fiction – Megan Carroll
This is part of a series launching the Watson, Little Prize. The prize is international, genre-specific, and in this inaugural edition of the prize – in celebration of the agency’s 50th year – it is dedicated to writers over 50 years of age. It aims to encourage those from older generations, from all backgrounds and from all nations and cultures, to apply. The 2021 prize will focus on upmarket fiction, and we look forward to seeing entries in this genre.

In each part of this series, a member of Watson, Little staff will offer favourite examples of upmarket fiction. Today, we look at Megan Carroll‘s picks.
The Last Hundred Years trilogy, starting with SOME LUCK, represents everything I look for in upmarket fiction – a compelling cast of characters, multiple voices, family dynamics and astounding storytelling that keeps you turning the page. Published in 2014 when Jane was 65, it is masterful in its detail and incredibly engaging for a story that spans so many generations of the Langdon family.
