Publisher's Summary

An evening of readings and discussion: Heller's friends and colleagues including Christopher Buckley, Robert Gottlieb, and Mike Nichols. They revisit his classic black comedy set at the end of World War II, one of the most important books about patriotism, honor, and the absurdities of war and beauracracy of the 20th century. The conversation is led by Lesley Stahl. An excerpt is performed by Scott Shepherd (Gatz). "The rock and roll of novels...There's no book like it." (Norman Mailer)

This is NOT a version of the audio book but its great!

I loved hearing from the original editor of the book and Mike Nichols! This is a live Interview with people who knew Joseph Heller. An Actor reads the opening with some hick-ups but a nice voice... this whole recording is a celebration and a wee insight into the exceptional and controversial book “A Catch 22”.

This is NOT AN AUDIOBOOK

This is not an audiobook of Catch 22. It’s some actor’s performance of an abridged version. Hugely disappointed. I will try to “return” this if I can.

Interesting take

This is kind of like the cliff notes version of Catch-22 with extras. Much different than expected but OK.
