Description - Yossarian Slept Here 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 Heller - from her colourful family members and her parents' tumultuous marriage, to her father's celebrity friends and the family's eccentric neighbours (Mel Brooks was a close confidante, Sidney Poitier shared the elevator). This is a story about achieving a dream, about fame and its aftermath, about squandered opportunities, lasting love and family.
