Explosive, subversive, wild and funny, 50 years on the novel's strength is undiminished.

Reading Joseph Heller's classic satire is nothing less than a rite of passage. Set in the closing months of World War II in an American bomber squadron off the coast of Italy, Catch-22 is the story of a bombardier named Yossarian who is frantic and furious because thousands of people he has never even met keep trying to kill him.

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.

Joseph Heller

Joseph Heller was born in 1923 in Brooklyn, New York. He served as a bombardier in the Second World War and then attended New York University and Columbia University and then Oxford, the last on a Fullbright scholarship.

He then taught for two years at Pennsylvania State University, before returning to New York, where he began a successful career in the advertising departments of Time, Look and McCall's magazines. It was during this time that he had the idea for Catch-22.

Working on the novel in spare moments and evenings at home, it took him eight years to complete and was first published in 1961.

His second novel, Something Happened was published in 1974, Good As Gold in 1979 and Closing Time in 1994. He is also the author of the play We Bombed in New Haven.

  • A brilliant and classic read!

    by on

    I read this ages ago and loved it, I couldnt work out what was going on in the first 50 pages and almost gave up but I persevered and then found it to be one of the most brilliant books Ive ever read. I have a fascination with aspects of war and what it does to normal people (Saving Private Ryan is one of my top films). This book is as hilarious as it is concerning and encapsulates the madness of war and how some people deal with it just to get through it. I must re-read it again.
