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.
Hilarious and tragic, at its heart is a savage indictment of twentieth century madness, and a desire of the ordinary man to survive it.
"The greatest satirical work in the English language since Erehwon." - Philip Toynbee, Observer.
"Blessedly, monstrously, bloatedly, cynically funny, and fantastically unique. No one has ever written a book like this." - Financial Times.
"Not only the best novel to come out of the war but the best novel to come out of anywhere in years." - Nelson Algren, The Nation.
"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.
