I have questions about the following line:
As the time away from his parents grows, what will become of John—and what kind of man is his uncle really?
Does the beginning clause ("As the time away from his parents grows") involve a dangling modifier, requiring that the next word be John in order to be correct? (For example, the sentence "Leaving home, the new place seemed nice to me" erroneously implies "the new place," not I, left home, containing a dangling modifier.) Also, should uncle have a comma here? Finally, should the line be punctuated as two questions rather than one sentence separated by a dash? Thanks!
