Catch-22

Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. No foxing in this copy. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. There is a small remainder mark. This book is currently IN STOCK and would be shipped directly from our Australian address.. Catch-22 is like no other novel. It is one of the funniest books ever written, a keystone work in American literature, and even added a new term to the dictionary. At the heart of Catch-22 resides the incomparable, malingering bombardier, Yossarian, a hero endlessly inventive in his schemes to save his skin from the horrible chances of war. His efforts are perfectly understandable because as he furiously scrambles, thousands of people he hasn't even met are trying to kill him. His problem is Colonel Cathcart, who keeps raising the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service. Yet if Yossarian makes any attempts to excuse himself from the perilous missions that he is committed to flying, he is trapped by the Great Loyalty Oath Crusade, the hilariously sinister bureaucratic rule from which the book takes its title: a man is considered insane if he willingly continues to fly dangerous combat missions, but if he makes the necessary formal request to be relieved of such missions, the very act of making the request proves that he is sane and therefore ineligible to be relieved. Catch-22 is a microcosm of the twentieth-century world as it might look to some one dangerously sane -- a masterpiece of our time. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

One, Carney, an illiterate Irishman, ex-convict and bushranger, is to be hanged at dawn. The other, Adair, also Irish, is the police officer who has been sent to supervise the hanging. As the night wears on, the two discover unexpected connections between their lives, and learn new truths. Outside the hut, Adair's troopers sit uneasily, reflecting on their own pasts and futures, waiting for the morning to come. With ironic humour and in prose of starkly evocative power, the novel moves between Australia and Ireland to explore questions of nature and justice, reason and un-reason, the workings of fate, and the small measure of freedom a man may claim in the face of death.

Postage quoted is for a standard format octavo book. Final charges may vary depending on size and weight.. The period from the accession of Elizabeth to the end of the l7th century is considered one of the high points of English drama and poetry. It was also a time when many forms of prose fiction developed, from popular chivalric romances and chapbooks to picaresque narratives and sophisticated romance forms--works which were the forerunners of the novel. This volume is the first comprehensive study of the prose fiction written or translated in England during this period. It combines a historical survey with a critical study of representative texts, both familiar works such as Sidney's Arcadia and little-known ones such as Mary Wroth's Urania (1621), the first prose fiction written by a woman in England. Salzman analyzes in detail the various prose forms of the period, focusing on specific examples, and examines the different audiences for these works and the influence of increasing literacy on the range of fiction produced.

This affectionate account of the magazine, long known as a home for congenital unemployables, is a celebration of its wards and attendants-William Shawn, Harold Ross's gentle and courtly successor as editor; the incorrigible mischief-maker James Thurber; the two Whites, Katherine and E. B.; John O'Hara, "master of the fancied slight"; and, among a hundred others, Peter Arno, Saul Steinberg, Edmund Wilson, and Lewis Mumford. Brendan Gill has known them all, and by virtue of his virtually total recall, keen eye, and impeccable prose, his diverting portraits of these eccentrics in rage and repose are amply supplied with both dimples and warts. Here at the New Yorker-now updated with a new introduction detailing the reigns of Robert Gottlieb and Tina Brown-is a delightful tour of New York's most glorious madhouse. Quantity Available: 1.

Olivier is a young aristocrat, one of an endangered species born in France just after the Revolution. Parrot, the son of an itinerant English printer, wanted to be an artist but has ended up in middle age as a servant. When Olivier sets sail for the New World - ostensibly to study its prisons, but in reality to avoid yet another revolution - Parrot is sent with him, as spy, protector, foe and foil. Through their adventures with women and money, incarceration and democracy, writing and painting, they make an unlikely pair. But where better for unlikely things to flourish than in the glorious, brand-new experiment, America? A dazzlingly inventive reimagining of Alexis de Tocqueville's famous journey, Parrot and Olivier in America brilliantly evokes the Old World colliding with the New. Above all, it is a wildly funny, tender portrait of two men who come to form an almost impossible friendship, and a completely improbable work of art. Quantity Available: 1.
