  1. How well said.
    My favorite Nick Hornby novel is /How to Be Good/. None of its characters seem like people I’d like to be friends with. Yet, the story and their concerns unsettle and move me.

    This complicates (in a good way) that impulse readers have to find characters “sympethetic,” which I believe you have written about before, Alex.
