Faustina Agolley reflects on a pivotal, New York-based crush.

For our 2019 Gala Night of Storytelling, we invited some of our favourite writers and thinkers to dish about their fictional crush. It may have been a character of page, stage, screen or stereo – or some life-changing, out-of-reach hero of the real world.
