9780099477310: Catch-22

At the heart of Joseph Heller's bestselling novel, first published in 1961, is a satirical indicement of military madness and stupidity, and the desire of the ordinary man to survive it. It is a tale of the dangerously sane Captain Yossarian, who spends his time in Italy plotting to survive.

Review:

"Wildly original, brutally gruesome, a dazzling performance that will outrage as many readers as it delights. Vulgarly, bitterly, savagely funny, it will not be forgotten by those who can take it" ( New York Times)

"Blessedly, monstrously, bloatedly, cynically funny, and fantastically unique. No one has ever written a book like this" ( Financial Times)

"Not only the best novel to come out of the war but the best novel to come out of anywhere in years" ( The Nation)

"The greatest satirical work in the English language since EREHWON" (Philip Tonybee Observer)

"An apocalyptic masterpiece" ( Chicago Times)

Book Description:

10 million copies sold in 21 languages: Yossarian lives! This is a special edition to celebrate 50 years of this unforgettable, exhilarating classic.
