Journal Entry 1 by buttonbright from Raleigh, North Carolina USA on Sunday, December 3, 2023
Written in 1944, Dangling Man takes the form of the journal of a young man waiting to be drafted. He has received notice, but a series of mix-ups keeps him waiting for the official call to arms.

An essential masterwork by Nobel laureate Saul Bellow—now with an introduction by J. M. Coetzee

A Penguin Classic

Expecting to be inducted into the army to fight in World War II, Joseph has given up his job and carefully prepared for his departure to the battlefront. When a series of mix-ups delays his induction, he finds himself facing a year of idleness. Saul Bellow's first novel documents Joseph's psychological reaction to his inactivity while war rages around him and his uneasy insights into the nature of freedom and choice.

I found this book on the discount shelves of a local used bookstore.
