Yossarian Slept Here : When Joseph Heller was Dad and Life was a Catch-22 Paperback
by Erica Heller
'You're Joseph Heller's daughter? How terrific!'But was there a catch?Like his most famous work, Joseph Heller was a study in contradictions: eccentric, brilliant and voracious, but also mercurial, competitive, and stubborn, with a love of mischief that sometimes cut too close to the bone.
Yossarian Slept Here is a daughter's darkly funny, poignant memoir about growing up a Heller - from her colourful family members and her parents' tumultuous marriage, to her father's celebrity friends and the family's eccentric neighbours.
This is a story about achieving a dream, about fame and its aftermath, about squandered opportunities, lasting love and family.
