Catch-22 Summary

Catch-22 by Joseph Heller

SOON TO BE A MAJOR TV SERIES Discover Joseph Heller's hilarious and tragic satire on military madness, and the tale of one man's efforts to survive it. It's the closing months of World War II and Yossarian has never been closer to death. Stationed in an American bomber squadron off the coast of Italy, each flight mission introduces him to thousands of people determined to kill him. But the enemy above is not Yossarian's problem - it is his own army intent on keeping him airborne, and the maddening `Catch-22' that allows for no possibility of escape. `The greatest satirical work in the English language' Observer

Catch-22 Reviews

"It is a rare book in that it has the ability to make you laugh out loud and be deeply moved within a few pages." -- Adam Staten * British Journal of General Practice *
" Wildly original, brutally gruesome, a dazzling performance that will outrage as many readers as it delights. Vulgarly, bitterly 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 *
"The greatest satirical work in the English language" * Philip Toynbee, Observer *
"Blessedly, monstrously, bloatedly, cynically funny, and fantastically unique. No one has ever written a book like this" * Financial Times *
