9780099529118: Catch-22: 50th Anniversary Edition (Vintage Classics)

He had decided to live forever or die in the attempt

Set in Italy during World War II, this is the story of a bombardier named Yossarian, a hero who is furious because thousands of people he has never met are trying to kill him. Joseph Heller's unforgettable novel is a hilarious and tragic satire on military madness, and the tale of one man's efforts to survive it.

This fiftieth-anniversary edition celebrates Heller's masterpiece with an introduction by Howard Jacobson, rare images from Heller's personal archive and essays by the likes of Norman Mailer, Anthony Burgess and Christopher Hitchens.

Reading Catch-22 is nothing less than a rite of passage. Here, at last, is the definitive edition of a classic of world literature.

Review:

"The greatest satirical work in the English language" ( Observer)

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

"My all-time favourite war-novel" (Andy McNab Spectator)

" Catch-22 gave us a right to laugh at the macabre. Laughter is a soldier's response to a lot of absurdity and the terror of it all. The military machine does the strangest things that make no sense to the rest of us." ( Tim O'Brien)

" Catch-22 is the only war novel I've ever read that makes any sense" (Harper Lee, 1961)

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.
