Hilarious and tragic, at the heart of Catch 22 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 "An apocalyptic masterpiece" Chicago Times
