Catch-22

By: Joseph Heller

Price: $14.95

Publisher: UK, Vintage Arrow: 2004

Seller ID: 9780099470465

ISBN: 0099470462

Condition: New


At the heart of Joseph Heller's bestselling novel, first published in 1961, is a satirical indictment of military madness and stupidity, and the desire of the ordinary man to survive it. It is the tale of the dangerously sane Captain Yossarian, who spends his time in Italy plotting to survive. Arguably the best novel to come out of World War II, in which Heller strips away the veneer of martial glory to expose its insanity, and gives our language a new paradoxical phrase to describe mankind at the mercy of its own institutions.
