Joseph Heller's Catch-22

Summary

Since its publication in 1961, Joseph Heller's best-selling novel Catch-22 has not only come to symbolise the cynical self-serving aspect of war run as a business but also the way an ordinary person can be trapped and controlled by bureaucracy and social rules, in whatever area of life. It gave voice to American soldiers serving in Vietnam in the 1960s and it continues to engage new readers. Bridget Kendall examines the secret of its success
