Esther has always been very serious with a very well-developed, some might say over-developed, sense of right and wrong and no time for the middle ground. But this is just an attempt to find order in what for her is a confusing and chaotic world filled with people whose morals and priorities she just can't understand. Working as a journalist she takes up arms in defense of an elderly brother and sister who are going to lose the only home they've ever known as it stands in the way of a new opera house development. It's this crusade that finally makes her realise that things in life are never as black and white as they seem.
What I liked so much about Esther was that she was flawed, a social misfit, intense, neurotic and, most of all, very very funny. I live in hope that I can create such rounded, sympathetic characters.
