Item description for Trampa 22 (Catch-22) (Bolsillo) by Joseph Heller...

At the heart of Catch-22 resides the incomparable World War II flier John Yossarian, a hero endlessly inventive in his schemes to save his skin from the horrible chances of war. Yet if he attempts to excuse himself from the perilous missions, he is trapped by the Great Loyalty Oath Crusade, the hilariously sinister bureaucratic rule from which the book takes its title: a man is considered insane if he willingly continues to fly dangerous combat missions, but if he makes the necessary formal request to be relieved of such missions this very act proves that he is sane and therefore ineligible to be relieved. As revealing today as when it was first published, this brilliant novel was the preferred reading material of the pacifist movement of the 1960 s, expressing the concerns of an entire generation in its black comedy.

Description in Spanish: La accin se desarrolla durante los ltimos meses de la Segunda Guerra Mundial y se centra en una escuadrilla de bombarderos estadounidense. El coronel Cathcart, jefe de la escuadrilla, quiere ser ascendido a general. Y no encuentra mejor manera que enviar a sus hombres a realizar las misiones ms peligrosas. Con una lgica siniestra, Yossarian, un piloto subordinado de Cathcart que intenta ser eximido del servicio alegando enfermedad mental, recibe por respuesta que slo los locos aceptan misiones areas y que su disgusto demuestra que est sano y que, por tanto, es apto para volar.
