About this book
A new edition of Heller's classic novel which satirises the insanities of war, published to celebrate its 50th anniversary. One of the best novels ever written, it follows Yossarian, an American bombardier caught up in WWII, on an island off the coast of Italy. Based on Heller's own experiences, its title has become part of the English language. '"Catch-22" is the only war novel I've ever read that makes any sense' Harper Lee
Set in the closing months of World War II in an American bomber squadron off the coast of Italy, this title tells 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.
