WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY HOWARD JACOBSON 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.

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 *
"Blessedly, monstrously, bloatedly, cynically funny, and fantastically unique. No one has ever written a book like this" * Financial Times *
"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 *
"It is the Rock and Roll of novels" -- Norman Mailer
"Catch-22 is the only war novel I've ever read that makes any sense" -- Harper Lee
