I am unsure why I missed reading Joseph Heller’s classic satire both in high school and in college but I did. There was a time when reading Catch-22 was nothing less than a rite of passage. And 45 years later, the novel’s strength can be found in how it still holds a looking-glass to the modern world. Again and again, Heller’s characters demonstrate that what is commonly held to be good, is bad; what is sensible, is nonsense.
