Synopsis

'The greatest satirical work in the English language' - The Observer There was only one catch and that was Catch-22 Captain John Yossarian, reluctant US army bombardier, is stuck on a Mediterranean island in the dog days of the Second World War. Spinning giddily amidst a morass of specious rules and pointless regulations he attempts to maintain a tenuous grip on his sanity, whilst not losing his life on another fruitless mission. But with the warped logic of Catch-22 ringing in his head and a cast of eccentric, deluded and just plain crazy comrades snapping at his heels, he begins to wonder whether he is ever going to be allowed to go home again. One of the great satirical novels in Western literature, Catch-22 is an absurdist condemnation of armed conflict and a rallying cry against the arbitrary authority of those in power. A television adaptation, co-directed by and starring George Clooney, aired on Channel 4 in June 2019.
