Tweet on Joseph Heller

Joseph Heller’s great novel Catch-22 was published in 1961 I strongly recommend his second novel Something Happened which was published in 1974. It’s really admirable that Heller wrote something completely different than Catch-22. It’s really underrated. It lulls you to sleep over many pages where not much happens and then it blindsides you. On the other hand, I would not recommend his third novel Good as Gold from 1979. It’s satirical but I wasn’t amused when I read it. Maybe 40 years later, I might like it better.
