Bennett Madison
"I myself have been idiotically told that I write “awful” books because the people in them are unpleasant. Intelligent readers do not confuse the quality of a book with the moral rectitude of the characters. For those who want goodigoodiness, there are some Victorian good-girl religious novels that would suit them fine."

— Margaret Atwood on “likable” characters. Clearly this is a topic on which many authors have a lot of pent up rage.
