WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY HOWARD JACOBSON

Explosive, subversive, wild and funny, 50 years on the novel's strength is undiminished. Reading Joseph Heller's classic satire is nothing less than a rite of passage.

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.

Joseph Heller was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1923. In 1961, he published Catch-22, which became a bestseller and, in 1970, a film. He went on to write such novels as Something Happened, God Knows, Picture This, Closing Time (the sequel to Catch-22), and Portrait of an Artist, as an Old Man. Heller died in December 1999.

"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."
British Journal of General Practice - Adam Staten

"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

"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"
The Nation

"The greatest satirical work in the English language since EREHWON"
Observer - Philip Tonybee
