No 1: Holden Caulfield. Is older at age than he feels inside. Also buys a record for a family member (his sister) and feels sad when it breaks.
I once was in Hungary and bought a 78 rpm record (recorded 1932) of 'O sole mio' as a gift for my (now) late granddad. I guess i never took so much care for a record like this one (bringing it from Hungary to Germany).

No 2: Dorian Gray. I wish someone would paint a picture that would age instead of me.

I've always felt a bit like T-Bone from the Clifford The Big Red Dog stories.

Carl Hiaasen. His hero's are often socially challenged wack jobs that I can relate to and emulate. It's also important to maintain a sense of humor about the world around us...

I stopped reading Clifford before T-Bone arrived - bummer - how can I truly understand Lefty's perspectives now?

I've forgotten his name, but the narrator in Henry Miller's, Tropic of Cancer, is someone I related to. Cynical about the human condition, willing to let spill his life story and inner-most secrets, and with a penchant for sexual debauchery, :D he struck a somewhat familiar chord when I read it in my mid-twenties. The character is autobiographical, but the author's actual life bears little resemblance to my own. It's what's going on in his head that kept me interested in him.

After much consideration, I have decided that I best identify with Max of Where The Wild Things Are.

Asterix led a pretty enviable life too.

While not exactly literary, I relate a lot to the Joe Bar Team characters.
