One of the greatest novels of the twentieth century, now celebrating its 50th anniversary.
Joseph Heller was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1923. In 1961, he published Catch-22, which became a bestseller and, in 1970, a film. He went on to write such novels as Something Happened, God Knows, Picture This, Closing Time (the sequel to Catch-22), and Portrait of an Artist, as an Old Man. Heller died in December 1999.
"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, savagely 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 * "Not only the best novel to come out of the war but the best novel to come out of anywhere in years" * The Nation * "The greatest satirical work in the English language since EREHWON" -- Philip Tonybee * Observer *
