Dizzy & Alison Illustration
Although Alison, the narrator, is the straight man in order to offset the eccentric Dizzy, she does have a couple of quirks of her own. One gripe that runs through Anything Can Happen is her dislike of the concierges in Paris buildings. She considers them to be grumpy little power mongers, ruling the foyer from their little cubicles. However, towards the end she seems to lighten up a bit towards them and even engages in conversation with Madame Bertholet's concierge.
