Dangling Man by Saul Bellow

Set in Chicago during World War II, the novel follows the life of a young man waiting to be drafted into the army. As he waits, he grapples with his feelings of isolation, frustration, and anxiety, which are exacerbated by his joblessness and the uncertainty of his future. His diary entries reveal his philosophical reflections on life, his struggles in his relationships, and his increasing mental instability as he feels more and more trapped by his circumstances.
