From Marian Keyes' Q & A with the Independent's Arifa Akbar:
Choose a favourite author and say why you like her/himRead the complete Q & A.
It's hard to choose one but I'm very fond of Kate Atkinson. I like how she puts a sentence together. She's very witty and compassionate about the human condition.

Which fictional character most resembles you?
I'm really sorry but I've agonised and I don't have any recollection of reading a character and thinking 'she's like me'.

Who is your hero/heroine from outside literature?
Aung San Suu Kyi. I admire her self sacrifice so much. She has remained strong. She's an example of how amazing human beings can be.
