Sisterland not only reveals hidden depths in its characters, but it, too, holds more than a snap judgment might promise. Was she exaggerating what it feels like to be an empath—someone who understands feelings without being told?
Was she trying to hint at the way bonds between sisters—or mother and child—can often seem extrasensory? Was she extending a middle finger at the way the literary establishment dismisses genre fiction out-of-hand? Did Sittenfeld latch on to a gimmick as a way of drawing attention to the sort of story that, when written by women, is frequently ignored or categorized as little more than chick lit?
I guess it's much more interesting to me to write someone who is a combination of good and bad qualities because that's what people are like in real life.
