Makes me wanna read it--twice
See historian Ron Rosenbaum's meandering, brilliant review of Joseph Heller's great novel, "Catch-22", on its 50th anniversary, here.
I would only add to Rosenbaum's analysis that one may see a connection between "Catch-22"and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" as being about people confronting societal absurdities with sanity, and being considered insane.
Funny to read about Heller because, recently, I have been reading Heller's "Something Happened," which I recall being ripped in some quarters when it was released in the mid-1970s. It captures better than most literature or histories the cultural sensibilities of the 1970s in suburban America, and provides a powerful portent of the later destruction. It has proven difficult sometimes to read because it strikes at the heart of a middle aged man, of which I am in deepening middle age, and the angst it captures amidst the dark humor is simply remarkable.
