Fictional Characters Are Imaginary Friends

NPR.org has a thought provoking audio clip from Pulitzer prize winning author Jhumpa Lahiri on how fictional characters are like imaginary friends for writers. Her new book is Unaccustomed Earth

It does make us writers sound a wee bit dysfunctional.

Made any good friends lately? :)

Yeah! It's a relief to know, isn't it.

Sissy needs some Victoria's Secret for Alder.
