Few American writers have enjoyed such an auspicious debut as Heller did with "Catch-22", and fewer still have managed to follow their initial success with novels that are read as widely, and with as much enjoyment, as are Heller's. He remains today what he was virtually from the beginning of his career - one of our most important satirists. To say that his comic vision is "dark" is perhaps an understatement, for a book like "Something Happened" (1974) forces us to look at contemporary American life in entirely new, and often uncomfortable ways. In this study, the author puts Heller's fiction in a proper literary-historical context and analyzes the individual novels.
