Seize The Day - Saul Bellow - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Seize the Day:

Dreams, disillusionment, debt, and a day of reckoning.

My favorite Saul Bellow quote from the book:

"If love is love, it's free."

Questions I pondered while reading Seize the Day:

Is it possible to spend too much time in your own head?

How appropriate is tough love?

My review of Seize the Day:

Tommy is a sad, little, man.

I suppose I should have felt bad but didn't.

Tommy is a great example of what not to do.
