Imperfect Perfection
Why we like the uneasy hero. On paper, some heroes wouldn’t be all that much to write home about. But in novels it isn’t just about the redemption of a man through the woman he loves but all of his actions put together, the good/ the bad, historically and going forward, that give him depth and make him worthwhile. That his imperfections are what makes him interesting… what makes him perfect.
