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.’
