Matchmaker, matchmaker…

by Miriam

Okay, Valentine’s Day is in the rear view mirror by now, but Lauren passed on this delightful piece about literary matches made in hell, and I thought I’d share.

Makes me wonder what other couples a good matchmaker could bring together: Scarlett O’Hara and Mr. Big? You know he’d get her a great big ring and she’d never go hungry again eating at trendy places in Manhattan. Raskolnikov and Bella from Twilight? She likes those brooding, tortured types and would probably hang around until he gets out of his Siberian prison….

Any others you can think of?


  1. Ignatius Rielly and Blanch Dubois: They’re both so caught up in their own little worlds they could probably imagine they’re in a healthy relationship.

  2. I want to see Edna Pontellier with George Emerson.

    And Dr. Doolittle with Mrs. Piggle Wiggle.

    And I Carrie (from Carrie) with Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, although I suppose that one would have to transcend media. But they're all telekinetic, so that would probably fly.
