This week, my teaser is from Catch-22 by Joseph Heller. I'm not very far in yet so I'm not sure what to make of it, the book being one of the so-called classics (I try to read classics during the summer each year). Though I do find some of the passages rather funny, if in a black, cynical sort of way.
The government paid him well for every bushel of alfalfa he did not grow. The more alfalfa he did not grow, the more money the government paid him, and he spent every penny he didn't earn on new land to increase the amount of alfalfa he did not produce.-p. 79
Have you ever read Catch-22? If so, what did you think? What are you reading right now?
