Well, I guess you can. Your characters can have namesakes from real people! There are also anime shows that did the same; such as Bungou Stray Dogs and Bungo to Alchemist. As for the "consent" and "permission", you can just add these notes to your wall or description of your novel/comic, noting that there are real books mentioned in your story and that your character/s has a namesake. It's up to you, really.
