Catch-22

Catch-22 - Joseph Heller This is one of the books that helped to shape me, fed my cynicism about war and the government and, like someone mentioned below, stated quite clearly there were sound reasons to feel alienated in the post WWII America. This is not just a story about being a bombardier in a B-17 during the war. Yossarian is powerless and caught in the machine of war, as we are caught up in our attempts at life within a chaotic, all powerful system. If anyone needs to read a resume of my early life and know why I am as twisted as I am, look to Heller and Vonnegut - my guides.
