9780099536017: Catch-22

A burlesque epic in the tradition of THE GOOD SOLDIER SCHWEIK, CATCH-22 exposes the absurdity of war by applying its own demented logic to America's involvement in Korea. The 'catch' is that soldiers have to claim to be mad in order to get out of fighting - but being capable of making such a claim automatically proves them sane. With a cast of magnificently larger-than-life characters who are rushed along at a breathless pace, for once this really is a novel it's hard to put down. CATCH-22 was made into a film.

Product Description:

Set in the closing months of World War II in an American bomber squadron off the coast of Italy, Catch-22 is the story of a bombardier named Yossarian who is frantic and furious because thousands of people he has never even met keep trying to kill him.

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)
