Yossarian Slept Here: When Joseph Heller was Dad and Life was a Catch-22

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 passionate and 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 about family.
