**AS SEEN ON BBC TWO's BETWEEN THE COVERS**

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

It's the closing months of World War II and Yossarian has never been closer to death. Stationed in an American bomber squadron off the coast of Italy, each flight mission introduces him to thousands of people determined to kill him.

But the enemy above is not Yossarian's problem - it is his own army intent on keeping him airborne, and the maddening 'Catch-22' that allows for no possibility of escape.

MEDIA 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

Blessedly, monstrously, bloatedly, cynically funny, and fantastically unique. No one has ever written a book like this - Financial Times

An apocalyptic masterpiece - Chicago Times
