The Literary Dinner

All of us are familiar with the ice-breaker of picking famous people we'd like to invite for a dinner party. Here's a twist: which fictional characters would you have at your dinner party?

My choices:

  1. Dr. Stephen Maturin from the Aubrey-Maturin novels by Patrick O'Brian.
  2. Hercule Poirot from the Agatha Christie novels.
  3. Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter books.
  4. Frank Skeffington from The Last Hurrah by Edwin O'Connor.
  5. Sherlock Holmes from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
  6. Clarice Starling from The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris.
  7. Scarlett O'Hara from Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell.
  8. Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
  9. Dirk Struan from Tai-Pan by James Clavell.
  10. George Smiley from the John LeCarre novels.
  11. Wilkins Micawber from David Copperfield by Charles Dickens.
  12. Sir Harry Flashman from the Flashman novels by George MacDonald Fraser
