Explosive, subversive, wild and funny, after 50 years the strength of Joseph Heller's story is undiminished. Set in the closing months of World War II, a bombardier named Yossarian is trapped in the absurd world of an inescapable war. Frantic and furious, as thousands of people he has never met try to kill him, Yossarian is stalked and thwarted by the merciless Catch-22.
