really liked it

bellow's first novel is not as brilliant as those written during his peak, but it shows flashes. most interesting to me were the traces of existentialism found herein, which can be seen in a better digested form in bellow's later work. [return:][return:]dangling man is very short, to the point that it can be read in one long sitting. it is an uneven novel, and the characters are not nearly as lively as bellow's would come to be, but it's still bellow, and it's still great.
