Day six: Favourite Book Character.
Lady Brett Ashley, The Sun Also Rises.
Brett is the heartbreaker in the canonical novel about a group of disaffected expats living in post-war Europe. Dearest Brett: you are everything I love in a woman: recklessly adventurous, impulsive, completely irresponsible, charming and miserable*. You flit through Europe in jaunty jersey with your fashionably bobbed hair, boozing and charming your way, leaving a trail of bills to settle and discussions to be finished on the meaninglessness of life. Tell me how could I not love you.
Dearest Jake. I'm so sorry to have drawn you as a Communist cyborg. Stop. Forgive me. Kitty.
 *I don't actually condone misery, I just find it hopelessly romantic.
