Friday lunchtime in the Hot Key office, the sun is (sporadically) shining and it’s been a couple of days since we last had to wear a scarf. At this time of year, young publishers’ thoughts turn to love. And thus, our big Friday discussion is… which literary characters do you fancy?
Personally, I’ve had a crush on Lord Peter Wimsey for 24 years now. Whenever I read any Dorothy L Sayers it always comes flooding back – he’s so dashing! So intelligent! So quick-witted! So good at coming up with successful publicity campaigns for Whifflets!! (If you haven’t read Murder Must Advertise, you really should.)
It got to the point when I was about 14 that I stopped reading any of the books that also contained Harriet Vane purely down to jealousy. I am over that now.
See..? REALLY important things being discussed here in Clerkenwell.
