YOSSARIAN SLEPT HERE by Erica Heller


Available at Tantor Media.
From Erica Heller, daughter of Catch-22 author Joseph Heller, comes a mordantly funny, poignant, and incisive memoir about growing up with her father.
Listen to a sample: 
On Oprah’s Fall Reading List.
“A rare combination of candor, humor, and compassion, this book is for all [listeners], especially of literary and family memoirs, and all fans of Heller. A fine combo with Tracy Daugherty’s Just One Catch: A Biography of Joseph Heller.” —Library Journal Starred Review
“An affectionate family scrapbook crafted with a bittersweet blend of humor and pathos.” —Kirkus
“Charming and combative.” —The New York Times

    This sounds interesting. I remember when Catch-22 came out (yes, I’m that old) and I read it soon after. I’ll have to pick this one up.

      I just looked up the publishing history — seems it was pubb’d in 1961.. I DO remember when it first came out but I didn’t read it until, um, I’m guessing 67 or 68.

        Maybe it was when the paperback came out?

        p.s. I loved the word “spoilery” in your FOREVER review!

      Would you like to review it? I can send you an mp3 copy (and even a CD copy if you want to host a giveaway). Let me know…
