Краткое описание

Just One Catch: A Biography of Joseph Heller.

Joseph Heller was a Coney Island kid, the son of Russian immigrants, whose experience flying WWII bombing missions over France would become the inspiration for Catch-22 ("The only war novel I've read that makes any sense," quipped Harper Lee). Heller wrote seven novels, all of which remain in print (Something Happened and Good as Gold, to name two, are considered the epitome of satire) and he was famous for his friendships, counting Mel Brooks, Zero Mostel, Carl Reiner, Kurt Vonnegut, Norman Mailer, Mario Puzo, Dustin Hoffman, and Woody Allen among his confidantes. Tracy Daugherty gives us a "groundbreaking portrait of the prophetic, contradictory, and essential Joseph Heller [that] is dramatic and revelatory."—Booklist (starred review)"Just One Catch is a large literary biography, rich with anecdote, and full of dirt that only an aspiring author would love. The story of how the sketches of 'Catch-18' became Catch-22, of how Heller's agent and publisher secured the book, of how it took him eight years to finish it, and of how it eventually made him rich and famous are so compellingly written as to be porn for the unpublished."—SFChronicle
