The question is, what literary character could make you see stars, complete your life, take you dancing and love you forever?
I'll go first. When I need to feel highbrow, I go with Emma's Mr . Knightley. But my heart truly belongs to John Sandford's Lucas Davenport, who can cook, shoot, and design computer games, and whose best friend is a nun.
Limiting myself to children's books . . . as a young teen I had a crush on the girl Jesse in Lois Duncan's Ransom, and Monsieur Roger Tunnel in Kin Platt's The Boy Who Could Make Himself Disappear. And now I kind of have a thing for the Nac Mac Feegle, yup, all of 'em. The heart wants what the heart wants.
