I am hearing more talk of Holden Caulfied than I thought I would after Salinger's passing. Caufield, a first-person construction, bored me as a teen, for I had gone to school with too many of them. The character I most related to was written in the third-person, Willa Cather's Paul from "Paul's Case" (1905). I wonder if I am alone on this.
