Offs himself. Also was a relatively shitty husband to poor Muriel, who just wanted to paint her damn nails and have a nice time at the beach and IS THAT REALLY A CRIME.

9. Holden Caulfield

Between the premature greying, the crippling self-doubt, and the fact that he'd call you a phony at least 10000000 times while simultaneously trying to grab your breast and then if you're lucky drunk dial you from a payphone in the middle of the night? Cool.

3. Buddy Glass

Solid dude. Makes a good cocktail, knows (for the most part) how to navigate awkward social situations. Loses points for being Salinger's alter ego because like, narcissism.

Senior editor, noted cactus-killer.
