Soon to be a major TV series on Channel 4 and Hulu, starring George Clooney and Hugh Laurie
**AS SEEN ON CHANNEL 4**
Discover Joseph Heller's hilarious and tragic satire on military madness, and the tale of one man's efforts to survive it.
It’s the closing months of World War II and Yossarian has never been closer to death. Stationed in an American bomber squadron off the coast of Italy, each flight mission introduces him to thousands of people determined to kill him.
But the enemy above is not Yossarian’s problem – it is his own army intent on keeping him airborne, and the maddening ‘Catch-22’ that allows for no possibility of escape.
‘The greatest satirical work in the English language’ Observer
“Wildly original, brutally gruesome, a dazzling performance that will outrage as many readers as it delights. Vulgarly, bitterly 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”
“The greatest satirical work in the English language”
Philip Toynbee, Observer
“Blessedly, monstrously, bloatedly, cynically funny, and fantastically unique. No one has ever written a book like this”
“An apocalyptic masterpiece”
“It is the Rock and Roll of novels”
“Catch-22 is the only war novel I've ever read that makes any sense”
