In a novel as darkly comic and audaciously ambitious as was Catch-22, Joseph Heller has dared to write the sequel to his American classic, using many of Catch-22's characters, now older if not wiser, to deftly satirize the realities and the myths of America in the half century since they fought World War II. In 1961, Joseph Heller's remarkable first novel made its way immediately into the American psyche and came to symbolize the absurdity of war and of life. Catch-22 was recognized overnight as a classic and has sold nearly ten million copies in the United States alone. It remains perhaps the funniest - and the most serious - novel ever written about war, "an apocalyptic masterpiece," in the words of one reviewer.Now, thirty-three years later, Joseph Heller has written the sequel. You don't have to have read Catch-22 (But then, who on earth hasn't?) to enjoy Closing Time, which is a fully independent companion work, a comic masterpiece in its own right, in which Heller spears the inflated balloons of our national consciousness - the absurdity of our politics, the decline of society and our great cities, the greed and hypocrisy of our business and culture - with the same ferocious humor that he used against the conventional view of warfare. His characters are those of Catch-22, coming to the end of their lives and the century, as is the entire generation that fought in World War II: Yossarian, and Milo Minderbinder, the chaplain, and such newcomers as little Sammy Singer and giant Lew, all linked, this time in uneasy peace and old age, fighting, not the Germans this time, but The End.Closing Time is outrageously funny and totally serious, and as brilliant and successful as Catch-22 itself, a fun-house mirror that captures, at once grotesquely and accurately, the truth about ourselves.… (mais)

Vervolg op Catch 22
  Marjoles | Mar 3, 2019 |
As a big fan of Catch-22, I was eager to read Closing Time yet at the same time not expecting much.

Part of the story focuses around Sammy Singer, the tailgunner on the plane in which Yossarian fails to save Snowden, and new character Lew Rabinowitz. Most of the rest of the story follows the elderly Yossarian, Chaplain Shipman and Milo Minderbinder.

I found that the story following the characters retained from Catch-22 were full of the outrageous and witty anecdotes that you'd expect to find in a Heller novel. To my surprise, the introduction of Milo's son, nicknamed M2, is a welcome addition to the story and he fits in perfectly with the classic characters.
Where, I feel, the novel lacks is in the sections on Singer and Rabinowitz. These parts just lack the charm and ridiculousness that people familiar with Heller would come to expect.

Overall, while this book is certainly a long way off its prequel in terms of quality, I think that this should be considered entirely separately to Catch-22 and it is definitely worth a read for those who are curious. ( )

ספר עצוב בשני מובנים, גם הנושא - מוות וזקנה וגם ההתדרדרות של הלר כסופר. דש בנוסטלגיה אינסופית במלכוד 22 והספר נמשך עד אין סוף. ( )

Jag skulle inte ha läst den här. Den är tråkig. Det tyckte jag ju i stort om "Moment 22" också.
Heller kan vara fantastisk långrandig och lägga ut texten i ämnen som är mig totalt egala. Och detaljer som överhuvudtaget inte intresserar mig. Jag begriper inte vad "Sluspel" vill säga. Men det är pompöst nog för att göra anspråk på att vilja ha någonting sagt. Eller också är det så enkelt att "om vi inte sköter våra kort bättre snart, kommer presidenten av misstag starta ett fasansfullt krig som vi alla går under i..." Dah!
Men ibland, särskilt i dialogen, blir Heller faktisk ganska rolig. Det räddar omdömet något. ( )

I struggled to maintain interest as the context kept switching and the climax is tedious as it is thoroughly disconnected fro the characters struggles and experiences in the book.

There are two distinct stories threaded through the book. The absurdities experienced by the Catch 22 characters and the more down to earth experiences of the other WW2 veterans Sam and Lew. Neither of the two stories are particularly bad, but intertwined as they are it falls apart. Either would have been okay as a stand alone story.

Frankly I recommend you to skip this one. There are better things to spend your time on. ( )

Interview:
In 'Sluitingstijd', zoals de Nederlandse vertaling luidt, maakt Heller de balans op van de afgelopen vijftig jaar. De belangrijkste personages uit Catch-22 maken opnieuw hun opwachting zoals Yossarian, de eigenzinnige luchtmachtkanonnier, en Milo Minderbinder, de dubieuze regelneef die zijn werkterrein verlegd heeft naar de wapenindustrie. Yossarians commentaar op het gekonkel van de politici en schimpscheuten aan het adres van de president, die het hele boek door consequent wordt aangeduid met 'het lulletje', sluiten direct aan op de satirische toonzetting van Catch-22.
 
Interview:
Heeft u met Closing Time een allesomvattend boek willen schrijven, een meesterproef van alle mogelijke genres en stijlen?

“Niet van alle mogelijke stijlen, maar wel van de stijlen die mij ter beschikking stonden. Het was een boek waarvan ik het gevoel had: dit moet ik nu schrijven, want zoveel jaren resten me niet meer. En gaandeweg kwam ik erachter dat mijn beheersing van de taal nog steeds groeiende is. Dat verbaasde me, want het schrijven zelf wordt er niet makkelijker op met de jaren. The longer we do it, the harder it gets.”
