WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY HOWARD JACOBSON Explosive, subversive, wild and funny, 50 years on the novel's strength is undiminished.

Joseph Heller's bestselling novel is a hilarious and tragic satire on military madness, and the tale of one man's efforts to survive it.

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 *
