‘Dangling Man’ is the title of a 1944 novel by American author Saul Bellow. It tells the story of a young unemployed man named Joseph, waiting to be drafted during World War II. It’s full of the existential angst of waiting, ‘hanging’ between the two worlds of civilian life and the army, with the secure identities they promise.
Perhaps ‘Dangling Man’ could be a metaphor for our experience of 2020, as we collectively held our breath, waiting, waiting and waiting some more…for a vaccine, for a cure, for certainty?
What if there is, in fact, a 'roadmap for life', one that provides certainty, meaning & purpose? City Legal is excited that Dr Sam Chan will be speaking for us in a brand-new four-part series entitled ‘A Roadmap for Life’. Don’t miss it!
