We don’t need another hero

‘I have no heroes and recognize none. The main character in a popular book is good enough for me, especially if that character lights up the circuits that evolution has wired inside me. I need encouraging, empowering, emboldening and consoling, the same as anyone else. Happily there are a lot of writers who know that. They aren’t dumb. I have needs, they have aims. Together we purr along, in a system designed by the ages. All good.’ Lee Child
