Tod Hackett  In his early twenties, he is a Hollywood set designer, whose sensibilities record and  respond to the novel's main events. His fruitless pursuit of Faye Greener makes him the protagonist. Homer Simpson  Forty-year-old retired hotel bookkeeper from Wayneville, Iowa. Repressed and  numb. His sexual obsession with Faye, combined with his delusions about her, make him a parallel  with and a contrast to Tod Hackett. Faye Greener  Seventeen-year-old, platinum blonde would-be Hollywood actress and sex goddess.  Shallow, heartless, and manipulative, she provides the focus of attention for most of the male  characters. Harry Greener  Middle-aged father of Faye, he brought her up by himself. An out-of-work vaudeville  comic performer who lives in the past and in fantasies of new success.
