Laughter is a soldier's response to a lot of absurdity and the terror of it all. The military machine does the strangest things that make no sense to the rest of us. - Tim O'Brien (American novelist). Catch-22 is the only war novel I've ever read that makes any sense. - Harper Lee (American novelist).
Captain John Yossarian is a bomber pilot who's just trying to make it through WWII alive. But the only excuse the Army will accept for refusing to fly a mission is insanity, and if Yossarian refuses to fly he is, by definition, sane.This is the self-devouring logical worm that lies at the heart of Catch-22, the story of Yossarian, his colleagues-who respond to the horrors of war with a range of seriocomic neuroses and psychoses-and his superiors, who respond to the horrors of war by sending Yossarian on ever more pointless and dangerous missions for the purpose of enhancing their own reputations. Catch-22 is a bitter, anguished joke of a novel that embraces the existential absurdity of war without ever quite succumbing to it (Lev Grossman, Time All-Time 100 Novels).
