Catch-22

Publisher: Everyman's Library
(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)

Arguably the best novel to come out of World War II, in which Heller strips away the veneer of martial glory to expose its insanity, and gives our language a new paradoxical phrase to describe mankind at the mercy of its own institutions.

PRAISE FOR

“Vulgarly, savagely, bitterly funny . . . A dazzling performance.”
—THE NEW YORK TIMES

“An extraordinary book . . . of enormous richness and art, of deep thought and brilliant writing.”
—THE SPECTATOR

“Below its hilarity, so wild that it hurts, Catch-22 is the strongest repudiation of our civilization, in fiction, to come out of World War II.”
—THE NATION

“An original. There's no book like it anyone has read . . . Heller is carrying his reader on a more consistent voyage through Hell than any American writer before him.”
—Norman Mailer

“Explosive, subversive, brilliant . . . One of the most bitterly funny books in the language.”
—THE NEW REPUBLIC
