Dangling Man, Paperback


Expecting to be inducted into the army, 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. "Dangling Man" is his journal, a wonderful account of his restless wanderings through Chicago's streets, his musings on the past, his psychological reaction to his inactivity while war rages around him, and his uneasy insights into the nature of freedom and choice.
