Thanks for the question, Mit007!
First off, thanks for bringing up a potentially great topic for me to write on! I'd love to talk about modern novels and heroes. I am not sure I understand what you want to know specifically, however.
Are you asking for examples of novels and characters that are modern or post-modern? Is this in specific context to a discussion from the article on Zadie Smith? I'd certainly love to answer your question and perhaps turn it into a hub, but a little more context would be very helpful, do you mind? Thanks a lot, I look forward to answering your question!
