For “The Big Question” in their April issue, The Atlantic asks “Who is the greatest fictional character of all time?” Alec Baldwin brings all his sensitivity and intelligence to bear on this question, as you will see below, by speaking for everyone, not just himself, and by recognizing a difference in the sexes. Gag.
You can read all of the responses online at The Atlantic here.
(Try not to cringe at the unequal representation of women, both as commenters on the question and as writers whose works are cited in their answers.)
