Joseph Heller Interview

How did you happen to read ' Catch 22' ? On Tehelka editor recommendation. They said, during the times of distress, George Fernandez kick backs and subsequent BJP Govt's harrassment, they read ' Catch 22' and ' Animal Farm' ( I still have to read it) and enjoyed and alleviated their stress.

I read it in 2004, and LOl ed a lot and it certainly deserves a 2 nd reading. I will, after ' Good as Gold', which too received a 4.5 star rating in amazon. Here's Joseph Heller interview. The link. As suspected, he had Jewish Antecendents and his father was a truck driver and died when Mr.Heller was only 4 year old !
