My Heroines

Under sedation, the mind does strange things. About the last thought I recall having as I went under on Wednesday was this: “Huh. My favorite characters in novels are all women, all much alike. Fanny Price (Mansfield Park) Anne Elliot (Persuasion), Little Dorrit (Little Dorrit), Molly Gibson (Wives and Daughters). My heroines. What does that reveal about me?” I don’t recall giving an answer. I don’t really have one now.
