Question of the reading week
Name a favorite fictional character, and maybe say a few words about why he/she is a favorite.
My own answer: Pearl Tull from Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant. I’m thinking about her and the silly thoughts she had about her children leaving home, like that the way they needed less light to sleep in their beds in her house as they got older resulted in a diminishing of the light at her door, and how she imagined that having another baby would help with how overwhelming her love for the first one was, and how when she had a second and a third she was more in danger than ever.
Put a favorite of yours in the comments?
