Jonathan Eller, a faculty member in the IU School of Liberal Arts, provided more than 50 pages of material for the new 50th anniversary edition of Joseph Heller’s classic novel Catch-22, published this year by Simon & Schuster. Eller, the senior textual editor of the Institute for American Thought at IUPUI, wrote an essay and selected companion articles by such major authors as Anthony Burgess, Norman Mailer and Nelson Algren, all fans of Heller’s novel.
