Perhaps the funniest book I’ve ever read. Also, one of the best ruminations on sanity and coercion and violence and the state of modern man in relation to power that I’ve ever read. In a time rife with the skewed, yet self-contained and inexorable logic of institutional madness, this seems more relevant than ever. Sane people in insane times have a hard go of it, basically. And yet, Yosssarian lives!
