Franklin Center, Pennsylvania: Franklin Library, 1994. First Edition. Full Leather. Fine / No Jacket as Issued. Item #5072

A handsome dark grey leather First Edition SIGNED by the author, Joseph Heller. In fine unread condition. With gold gilt cover designs and page edges, and bound-in silk bookmark. With a special introduction written by the author only for this edition. Heller's other well-known books included his very successful "Catch-22," "God Knows," "Good as Gold," and "Now and Then." A lovely copy by an important author.

A complex and fascinating sequel to "Catch-22," where Heller once again confronts death, class, war and politics with his distinctive style. The interviewer Charlie Reilly summarized it best, "The world of Heller's fiction is an eerily insane one -- perhaps an eerily sane one -- filled with preposterous characters mired in outrageous circumstances." Heller's wry humor is present throughout this title and he makes many points about real life figures and books, including Kurt Vonnegut's own experiences in the Dresden Bombing and the book "Slaughterhouse Five."
