Description - Something Happened by Joseph Heller


Joseph Heller's other masterpiece - a darkly comic, sometimes tragic satire that does for the American Dream what Catch-22 did for the madness of war

'Joseph Heller's finest achievement' Jonathan Coe

Bob Slocum was a promising executive. He had an attractive wife, three children, a nice house, and as many mistresses as he desired. His life was settled and ordered; he had conformed and society demanded he be happy - or at least pretend to be. But the pretence was becoming more and more difficult, as Slocum's discontent grew into an overwhelming sense of desolation, frustration and fear.

And then something happened. . .

'One of the most pleasurable, engrossing, and in retrospect moving American novels ever written... The most criminally overlooked great novel of the past half century is a book called Something Happened' LA Review of Books
