Now and then : from Coney Island to here by Joseph Heller ( Book )
7 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The demented Army Air Force of Catch-22, the lethal business world of Something Happened, the dysfunctional family of Good as Gold - all these, we have assumed, had their roots in Joseph Heller's own past. Now, more than thirty-five years after the explosion of Catch-22 into the world's consciousness, Heller gives us his life. Here is his Coney Island childhood, down the block from the world's most famous amusement park. It was the height of the Depression, it was a fatherless family, yet little Joey Heller had a terrific time - on the boardwalk, in the ocean (dangerously out of his depth), playing follow-the-leader in and out of local bars, even in school. Then a series of jobs, from delivering telegrams (on his first bike) to working in a navy yard - until Pearl Harbor, the air force, Italy. And after the war, college (undreamed-of before the G.I. Bill), teaching, Madison Avenue, marriage, and - always - writing. And finally the spectacular success of Catch-22, launching one of the great literary careers

18 editions published between 1962 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La acción se desarrolla durante los últimos meses de la Segunda Guerra Mundial y se centra en una escuadrilla de bombarderos estadounidense. El coronel Cathcart, jefe de la escuadrilla, quiere ser ascendido a general. Y no encuentra mejor manera que enviar a sus hombres a realizar las misiones más peligrosas. Con una lógica siniestra, Yossarian, un piloto subordinado de Cathcart que intenta ser eximido del servicio alegando enfermedad mental, recibe por respuesta que sólo los locos aceptan misiones aéreas y que su disgusto demuestra que está sano y que, por tanto, es apto para volar. La evolución psicológica de Yossarian refleja la aguda crítica que hace Joseph Heller de un patriotismo mal entendido, el cual exige sacrificios inadmisibles. Trampa 22, que se convirtió en el libro de cabecera del movimiento pacifista de los años sesenta, constituye un modelo de humor negro y absurdo en la literatura estadounidense.--Desde la descripción de la editorial

Catch as catch can : the collected stories and other writings by Joseph Heller ( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Long before there was a Catch-22, before there was even a Catch-18 (the novel's original title), Joseph Heller had begun sharpening his skills as a writer, searching for the voice that would best express the peculiarly wry view that he held of the world. Starting in 1945, with the publication in Story magazine of the short story "I Don't Love You Anymore," Heller began to reach out to an audience of readers damaged and disillusioned by their experiences during World War II. That story dealt with the return home of an American soldier who was having more than a little trouble adjusting. The stories published following this debut continued to reflect people at odds with the world around them, usually featuring the "little guy," the "underdog," the "average Joe" who beats the odds by surviving in a generally hostile and unwelcoming world. Written in what is termed the "New York Style," his were stories of urban naturalism, realistic and straightforward, emulating the work of such writers as Irwin Shaw, William Saroyan, John O'Hara, and, perhaps most especially, Nelson Algren. For Heller, writing these stories was a part of the learning process, his education on how to get across his own point of view, leading up to the publication of his masterpiece, Catch-22. Of the stories in this collection, thirteen were written before 1961, when Catch-22 was published; of those, five have never before been published. After Catch-22, Heller forsook the short story form. Though five stories were published after 1961, one-"World Full of Great Cities"--Was actually written in 1949; three of the other four are spin-offs of Catch-22, and one is a preview of Closing Time. Rounding out this collection of the complete published short writings of Joseph Heller are a short play and several nonfiction pieces, mostly related to Catch-22

Le film raconte la vie de jeunes aviateurs en 1944, sur une base de l'U.S. Air Force situé en Méditerranée. Il y a des vainqueurs et des perdants. Des opportunistes et des survivants. Ensemble ou séparés, ils sont nerveux, terrorisés, parfois sacrilèges, souvent pathétiques. Et ils sont tous un peu fous...Catch-22 est une des plus féroces satires de la vie militaire. Grâce à un humour noir incisif, ce magnifique film épique démontre avec brio l'absurdité de la guerre
