"Never has a book been laughed and wept over so many times" Guardian "To my mind, there have been two great American novels in the past fifty years. Catch-22 is one" -- Stephen King "Catch-22 is the only war novel I've ever read that makes any sense" -- Harper Lee "The war novel to end all war novels" Independent "Blessedly, monstrously, bloatedly, cynically funny and fantastically unique. No one has ever written a book like this" Financial Times
