In the 1960’s, we were never able to look at military life in the same way again. Now Joseph Heller has struck far closer to home.
Something Happened is about ambition, greed, love, lust, hate and fear, marriage and adultery. It is about the struggle among men, the war between the sexes, the conflict of parents and children. It is about the life we all lead today — and you will never be able to look at that life in the same way again.
Once in a decade, something important happens in books. In the 1970’s, it is Something Happened.
“Hypnotic, seductive. as clear and as hard-edged as a cut diamond!”
— Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., The New York Times Sunday Book
“The test of a novel is when it deserves to be read a second time. People will be rereading Something Happened and fifty years from now they’ll be reading it still!”
