Time and Again
Science fiction, mystery, a passionate love story, and a detailed history of Old New York blend together in Jack
Finney's spellbinding story of a young man enlisted in a secret Government experiment.
Transported from the mid-twentieth century to New York City in the year 1882, Si Morley walks the fashionable "Ladies'
Mile" of Broadway, is enchanted by the jingling sleigh bells in Central Park, and solves a 20th-century mystery
by discovering its 19th-century roots. Falling in love with a beautiful young woman, he ultimately finds himself
forced to choose between his lives in the present and the past.
by Joseph L. Heller
Catch-22 is like no other novel. It has its own rationale, its own extraordinary character. It moves back and forth
from hilarity to horror. It is outrageously funny and strangely affecting. It is totally original.
Set in the closing months of World War II in an American bomber squadron off Italy, Catch-22 is the story of a
bombardier named Yossarian, who is frantic and furious because thousands of people he hasn't even met keep trying
to kill him. Catch-22 is a microcosm of the twentieth-century world as it might look to someone dangerously sane.
It is a novel that lives and moves and grows with astonishing power and vitality -- a masterpiece of our time.
