You Remind Me of a Man…

Writers, we’ve been told, dread the question, “Where do you get your ideas?” (We dunno. In the bath, maybe?) But seriously—and in some cases, surprisingly—the answer is, “From real life.” Jezebel’s got a fun piece about the real-life origins of some of literature’s most memorable characters, including Dolores Haze (a.k.a. Lolita), Lady Macbeth, Molly Bloom (yeah…we’re linking to the Kate Bush videos again—the third time’s totally the funniest!), and, brr, Norman Bates and Buffalo Bill. (The one who wants you to rub the lotion on your skin, not watch a fun cowboy show. The latter’s a real dude in his own right.) Truth: stranger than fiction once again!
