it was amazing

Why did Joseph Heller meet his mother-in-law before he met his wife?
Why did 6 year old Joey Heller think a funeral was a happy occasion?
Why did Joe Heller secretly follow his daughter to school?

How did the Hellers celebrate the success of Catch-22? How did the
Hellers get a 7 thousand dollar Hamptons rental for half the price?
How did Joseph Heller satisfy his enormous love of food? When did
Shirley Heller get the gift of Germany?

Is this book worth reading, or what? Absolutely!

There's much humanity revealed about this literary legend who is
celebrated by Erica Heller with words deftly arranged to move the
reader to laugh and cry and not regret a moment spent reading her
Yossarian Slept Here.
