What do you do when your boyfriend dumps you and you’re nursing a broken heart?

For Trisha Bernard, the answer’s clear: escape to India, armed with a copy of the Kama Sutra. That’s how she readied herself should love (or lust) strike in the land of Kama Sutra.

But, as it always happens, not everything goes quite as planned. At the last minute, she’s joined by her long-lost eccentric shopaholic friend who travels with a monster-sized suitcase with its untidy collection of clothes, maps, pamphlets, plastic bags and some secret womanly stuff.

Navigating the chaotic streets of India in death defying auto-rickshaws and traversing the country on overcrowded trains and rattling buses the two find themselves almost marooned and camel-napped in the Thar desert and later attacked in no uncertain terms by an amorous monkey in New Delhi... Then, there’s India itself, where strangers share chai, samosas, gossip and much else at roadside dhabas existing in the middle of nowhere...

With Kama Sutra to inspire passion, the two friends lead us on a wacky and witty romp through one of the most fascinating potpourri of cultures.

This fiftieth-anniversary edition commemorates Joseph Heller’s masterpiece with a new introduction; critical essays and reviews by Norman Mailer, Alfred Kazin, Anthony Burgess, and others; rare papers and photos; and much more.

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.

Soon to be a Hulu limited series starring Christopher Abbott, George Clooney, Kyle Chandler, and Hugh Laurie.

Fifty years after its original publication, Catch-22 remains a cornerstone of American literature and one of the funniest—and most celebrated—books of all time. In recent years it has been named to “best novels” lists by Time, Newsweek, the Modern Library, and the London Observer.

Set in Italy during World War II, this is the story of the incomparable, malingering bombardier, Yossarian, a hero who is furious because thousands of people he has never met are trying to kill him. But his real problem is not the enemy—it is his own army, which keeps increasing the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service. Yet if Yossarian makes any attempt to excuse himself from the perilous missions he’s assigned, he’ll be in violation of Catch-22, a hilariously sinister bureaucratic rule: a man is considered insane if he willingly continues to fly dangerous combat missions, but if he makes a formal request to be removed from duty, he is proven sane and therefore ineligible to be relieved.

This fiftieth-anniversary edition commemorates Joseph Heller’s masterpiece with a new introduction by Christopher Buckley; a wealth of critical essays and reviews by Norman Mailer, Alfred Kazin, Anthony Burgess, and others; rare papers and photos from Joseph Heller’s personal archive; and much more. Here, at last, is the definitive edition of a classic of world literature.
