  1. Heller, Joseph Heller(noun)

    United States novelist whose best known work was a black comedy inspired by his experiences in the Air Force during World War II (1923-1999)


  1. Joseph Heller

    Joseph Heller was an American satirical novelist, short story writer, and playwright. The title of one of his works, Catch-22, entered the English lexicon to refer to a vicious circle wherein an absurd, no-win choice, particularly in situations in which the desired outcome of the choice is an impossibility, and regardless of choice, a same negative outcome is a certainty. Although he is remembered primarily for Catch-22, his other works center on the lives of various members of the middle class and remain examples of modern satire.
