9780099570080: Yossarian Slept Here: When Joseph Heller was Dad and Life was a Catch-22

'You're Joseph Heller's daughter? How terrific!'

But was there a catch?

Like his most famous work, Joseph Heller was a study in contradictions: eccentric, brilliant and voracious, but also mercurial, competitive, and stubborn, with a love of mischief that sometimes cut too close to the bone. Yossarian Slept Here is a daughter's darkly funny, poignant memoir about growing up a Heller - from her colourful family members and her parents' tumultuous marriage, to her father's celebrity friends and the family's eccentric neighbours.

This is a story about achieving a dream, about fame and its aftermath, about squandered opportunities, lasting love and family.

Review:

"A finely crafted, wonderfully observed reminiscence on an extraordinary, often traumatic life" ( Independent on Sunday)

"An affectionate, no-punches-pulled, often hilarious memoir" ( Herald)

"Both charming and combative" ( New York Times)

"As soon as I read the opening I was determined and eager to consume everything that followed, up to and including the Pot Roast" (Christopher Hitchens, author of Hitch-22)

"Heller's domestic side is evoked with painful detail by his daughter, Erica, in her well written, occasionally harrowing memoir, Yossarian Slept Here" ( Sunday Times)

Book Description:

A fascinating, moving and witty memoir by Joseph Heller's daughter, about life with her famous father.
