Thank you to Hasty Book List for including me! Here's my contribution!
I was stuck in an elevator on our eldest daughter’s wedding day. Luckily not for too long because I am a bit of a panicker. So, I am choosing a character who is more phlegmatic than I am when it comes to things like claustrophobia and heights. Author Nancy Mitford’s narrator, Fanny, in The Pursuit of Love, and Love in a Cold Climate would be an ideal companion. Fanny has a firm grip on life, having had to deal with her temperamental and tempestuous Radlett cousins, so her presence would be calming. But she is also far from dull. Her deft wit and wicked observations would help to distract from the worrying business of wondering if we were going to plummet to our death down the elevator shaft.25 Authors and The Book Characters They'd Like to Be Stuck in an Elevator With: www.hastybooklist.com/home/25-authors-and-the-book-characters-theyd-like-to-be-stuck-in-an-elevat...
