Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bob Slocum was living the American dream. He had a beautiful wife, three lovely children, a nice house...and all the mistresses he desired. He had it all — all, that is, but happiness. Slocum was discontent. Inevitably, inexorably, his discontent deteriorated into desolation until...something happened. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;Iandgt;Something Happenedandlt;/Iandgt; is Joseph Heller's wonderfully inventive and controversial second novel satirizing business life and American culture. The story is told as if the reader was overhearing the patter of Bob Slocum's brain — recording what is going on at the office, as well as his fantasies and memories that complete the story of his life. The result is a novel as original and memorable as his andlt;Iandgt;Catch-22.andlt;/Iandgt;

Synopsis:

From the author of "Catch-22" comes a compelling, funny and ultimately shocking tale of a corporate executive whose drives and fears stem from an obsession deep within his soul.
