批評家のレビュー

“In this imaginative journal, set against fresh and vivid scenes in Chicago, the author has outlined what must seem to many others an uncannily accurate delineation of themselves.” ( New York Times)

あらすじ・解説

An essential masterwork by Nobel laureate Saul Bellow

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.

Saul Bellow (1915–2005), author of numerous novels, novellas, and stories, was the only novelist to receive three National Book Awards. He also received the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, the Nobel Prize in Literature, and the National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. During the 1967 Arab-Israeli conflict, he served as a war correspondent for Newsday. He taught at New York University, Princeton, and the University of Minnesota and served as chairman of the Committee on Social Thought at the University of Chicago.

An Interesting Take On Idleness

This is a bit of a slow burn, but the story itself is one worth reading. It gives you a glimspe of the possible negative repercussions of a sedentary, idleness brought about by a lack of employment or engagement. Recommend!

thoughtful

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.

Long drag

If this was a non-fiction book great but it’s not, how it was written in a diary format it made the book seems double long. If you don’t mind hearing a lot of “he said, I said, she said, well I said, so-so said” definitely it has its lows and highs

Almost

What a wonderful, peculiar, almost very painful book. I really enjoyed many of Bellow's passages, marveled at his command. The main character, probably on the edge of falling into deep depression in the 1940s, with no path to a good life, struggles in seeming hopeless anger. I wouldn't have minded if Bellow took the character into depression to see how it would take a toll on someone, knock on wood. Dangling Man will definitely not be a great read/listen for everyone but it was definitely worth my time.
