Nancy is a fine character, but what interests me most is how he gets Roger so right; interested in steam ships as well as sail, so viewed askance by the others in SA, but the real Roger Altounyan later becomes a pilot instructor with the RAF, and a researcher who pioneers Intal and the spinhaler.
The other really interesting character(s) are Dick and Dot. I think that, between them, they are AR. Like every proper person, I am of course in love with Dot, but she (satirically, gently) represents AR and all authors, and Dick is the obsessive and scientific side. I also suspect that Mrs Barrable is his mum, although none of this is direct, one-for-one. He's an author, and the only place they really exist is in his head, but the coloration is there.
