“It’s remarkable that in this day and age, an unlikeable woman is nasty and awful and an unlikeable man is an anti-hero.”

Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn spoke in my city last night, so of course I’m finding that out today. Hers has always been a brain that I’ve wanted to pick, thanks to her masterful crafting of female anti-heroes like Amy Dunne from Gone Girl and Libby Day in Dark Places. (If you haven’t read Dark Places yet, it is, like, 12 times more fucked up than Gone Girl.) Flynn’s female characters just don’t give a shit and it’s such a pleasure to read. Though, I would argue that, deep down, both the protagonists in Gone Girl are pretty nasty and unlikeable! [Last Night’s Reading]
