Yossarian Slept Here
When Joseph Heller Was Dad, the Apthorp Was Home, and Life Was a Catch-22
Publication Date: September 2011
From Erica Heller, daughter of Catch-22 author Joseph Heller, comes a mordantly funny, poignant, and incisive memoir about growing up with her father.
Erica Heller is the daughter of Joseph Heller, the author of Catch-22. An advertising copywriter, novelist, and creative consultant, her work has appeared in the New York Observer and on the Huffington Post. She lives in New York City at the ever-evolving Apthorp apartment building. Karen White is a classically trained actress who has been recording and directing audiobooks for more than ten years. An Audie Award finalist and Best Audiobook of the Year 2009 winner for The Hemingses of Monticello by Annette Gordon Reed, she has earned many AudioFile Earphones Awards, including for Too Good to Be True by Erin Arvedlund and Inside of a Dog by Alexandra Horowitz. Of Karen's narration of Nothing to Envy by Barbara Demick, Publishers Weekly says, "Karen White delivers a stunning reading, her character interpretations are confident and well-rounded, and she forges a strong bond with the audience."
"A rare combination of candor, humor, and compassion, this book is for all [listeners], especially of literary and family memoirs, and all fans of Heller. A fine combo with Tracy Daugherty's Just One Catch: A Biography of Joseph Heller." ---Library Journal Starred Review
