What’s in a character’s name

Do the names of characters affect how you read fiction, perhaps enhance – or distract from – the reading experience? If you write, how do you choose your characters’ names – do you undertake research; do names just pop into your head; do you name them before or after a first draft? Also, what do …

After Alice by Gregory Maguire
