Dangling Man, the first published work by Saul Bellow, testifies to the psychology of a whole generation that grew up during the Great Depression and the war. We are in 1942; Joseph is twenty-seven, he lives in Chicago, and he’s waiting to be conscripted to the Army as a draftee. He left his job in a travel bureau and currently lives with his wife.

He has “all the time in the world,” as his mother-in-law says. This period of inactivity gives birth to a diary that covers five months of quarrels with friends, in-laws, and intense self-analysis. We go through his intimate daily notes, insecurities, fears, daily habits, and conversations with his alter ego, “Tu As Raison Aussi.”
