Seize The Day by Saul Bellow

The novel follows a single day in the life of a failed middle-aged man named Tommy Wilhelm who is estranged from his wife and children, and at odds with his father. As he grapples with his personal and financial failures, he seeks solace and a way out of his troubles through the advice of a dubious mentor, Dr. Tamkin. Throughout the day, Wilhelm experiences a series of humiliations and reflections on his life, leading to a moment of epiphany during a stranger's funeral. The story is a deep exploration of the human condition, the search for meaning, and the struggle for redemption in the face of despair.
