I was wondering if you could address on your (very helpful) blog the difference between literary and upscale fiction. “Upscale” is a term I can’t quite get a grasp on, and I’m hoping you’ll be able to enlighten me!
Frankly, I have no idea. It sounds to me like a term that was created by someone who thinks of genre fiction as “lowbrow,” but that’s just me guessing. I would have to say that I suspect there’s no difference between literary and upscale fiction. If, however, someone else knows differently, I’d love to hear it.
