    Expecting to be inducted into the army during 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. Written in diary format, 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.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The novella was Bellow's first and many of the themes he will develop more fully later are already adumbrated here.


    What other book might you compare Dangling Man to and why?

    Sartre's la Nausee each book looks for life's meaning and sees aimless freedom as inherently meaningless.
