Fading charmer Tommy Wilhelm has reached his day of reckoning and is scared. In his forties, he still retains a boyish impetuousness that has brought him to the brink of chaos: He is separated from his wife and children, at odds with his vain, successful father, failed in his acting career (a Hollywood agent once cast him as the "type that loses the girl"), and in a financial mess. In the course of one climactic day he reviews his past mistakes and spiritual malaise, until a mysterious, philosophizing con man grants him a glorious, illuminating moment of truth and understanding, and offers him one last hope...

Wilhelm is the failing son of Dr Adler, who has given up on him; he has deserted his wife and two kids, and now lost all his money in a very silly way to a trickster Tamkin, who at times sounds as though he is in a hypomanic state. He once screen tested for the movies, he once looked good, but no more. Most of the writing is about his self pitying ramblings. No I didn't like it, but it was at least only 1/4 inch thick. ( )

More mid-life male angst. ( )

Meh. I think this was a case of the wrong book at the wrong time. Honestly, just didn’t want to read about another poor me white man who can’t live up to his father’s expectations. A bit like Ulysses, the novel tags Place over the course of one day. It’s also a bit like Death of a Salesman, with one man feeling like he’s failed his family. It’s not bad, it just felt like the story of someone who never really grew up and is complaining about how life isn’t fair. ( )

Good God, what a downer.

Seize the Day is about one day in the life of a middle-aged man forced to live with the consequences of his decisions. It was rough on him, it was rough on his family, and it was really rough on me.

I think I'll be switching to a strict Eric Carle diet for the next 2-3 years. ( )

It is the intense world of the ordinary, the mean daily detail, the outrage of being alive, the existential sense of one's self as human creature, which is bravely at the center of Mr. Bellow's fiction. Each detail is cruel, plain, irremediable, yet one feels that it is about to burst forth into the radiance of consciousness.

“Oh, God,” Wilhelm prayed, “Let me out of my trouble. Let me out of my thoughts, and let me do something better with myself. For all the time I have wasted I am very sorry. Let me out of this clutch and into a different life. For I am all balled up. Have mercy."
Bringing people into the here-and-now. The real universe. That's the present moment. The past is no good to us. The future is full of anxiety. Only the present is real--the here-and-now. Seize the day.
...in Los Angeles all the loose objects in the country were collected, as if America had been tilted and everything that wasn’t tightly screwed down had slid into Southern California.
Everyone was like the faces on a playing card, upside down either way.
