Sigmund Freud is listening. Oops, I mean reading.
And I guess I am talking about one-book characters more than series characters. Of course we remember Wexford, Poirot, Adam Dagliesh, Tom Ripley, Tess Monaghan, Alan Banks, Morse, Harry Lime, etc. But how often does the name of a character from one book stay with you.
On Facebook, Stephen Allan mentioned Frank Wheeler and I knew who it was immediately (perhaps because of the recent movie). Same with Daisy Buchanan, Dean Moriarty, Humbert Humbert, Yossarian, Hester Prynne, Sammy Glick. Which characters from one-book efforts, (where the title of the book was not the name of the character) stay with you?
Who was indelible their only time out?
