Dorothy Parker on hated characters

"It’s easier to write about those you hate--just as it’s easier to criticize a bad play or a bad book."
-- Dorothy Parker in an interview with Paris Review

Possibly if it's too easy, it doesn't consider the hated characters as well, which may explain why her stories make better art than her verse.
