    Review text
    The phrase, now maddeningly misused by politicians and DJs alike, came from this wonderfully dark and cynical anti-war novel of the 1960s. (Catch-22 states that a man can be exempted from bombing missions if he is mad; but that the desire to be exempted is proof that he is sane.) The novel is as funny as it is bitter and no-one growing up through the Falklands and Gulf conflicts will fail to see the point. (Kirkus UK)
