Review quote

"It is a rare book in that it has the ability to make you laugh out loud and be deeply moved within a few pages." -- Adam Staten British Journal of General Practice "Blessedly, monstrously, bloatedly, cynically funny, and fantastically unique. No one has ever written a book like this" Financial Times "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 "It is the Rock and Roll of novels" -- Norman Mailer "Catch-22 is the only war novel I've ever read that makes any sense" -- Harper Leeshow more
