Explosive, subversive, wild and funny, 50 years on the novel's strength is undiminished. Reading Joseph Heller's classic satire is nothing less than a rite of passage.

Set in the closing months of World War II, this is the story of a bombardier named Yossarian who is frantic and furious because thousands of people he has never met are trying to kill him. His real problem is not the enemy - it is his own army which keeps increasing the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service. If Yossarian makes any attempts to excuse himself from the perilous missions then he is caught in Catch-22: if he flies he is crazy, and doesn't have to; but if he doesn't want to he must be sane and has to. That's some catch...

Review:

"Never has a book been laughed and wept over so many times" (Guardian)

"To my mind, there have been two great American novels in the past fifty years. Catch-22 is one" (Stephen King)

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

"The war novel to end all war novels" (Independent)

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

Book Description:

50th anniversary of Catch 22's publication. Yossarian lives!
