Set in the closing months of World War II, this is the story of a bombardier named Yossarian who is frantic and furious because thousands of people he has never met are trying to kill him.

Never has a book been laughed and wept over so many times * Guardian * To my mind, there have been two great American novels in the past fifty years. Catch-22 is one -- Stephen King Catch-22 is the only war novel I've ever read that makes any sense -- Harper Lee The war novel to end all war novels * Independent * Blessedly, monstrously, bloatedly, cynically funny and fantastically unique. No one has ever written a book like this * Financial Times *
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.
