Advent Calendar – December 12th

The book behind the door of our Literary Advent Calendar today made such an impact that its title has passed into English as a phrase. Today’s book is chosen by Jon Teckman, author of Ordinary Joe.

Jon has chosen Catch-22 by Joseph Heller

Jon says: ‘Every single sentence in Catch-22 is perfectly crafted to make you stop and think without interrupting the flow of the story or the importance of the message. Never have the horrors and futility of war been so hilariously yet poignantly expressed.’

  1. You definitely should, Linda. I’ll admit it’s not to everyone’s taste but to me it is the ultimate comic novel – albeit one with a very important message. For me, lie the very first sentence of the novel, “it was love at first sight . . .”!
