Watson, Little Prize: Upmarket Fiction – Rachel Richardson
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 Rights Director Rachel Richardson‘s picks.
Joanna Trollope’s A SPANISH LOVER, published when the author was on the cusp of turning fifty, is a lovely, light-hearted sister story with romance, intelligent, writing, and most importantly sympathetic portrays of complex women.
