About This Item

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1974. Hardcover. 8vo. Black cloth with gilt spine lettering, dust jacket. 569pp. Near fine/very good. Faint jacket edgewear.

Synopsis

Something Happened is a 1974 novel by Joseph Heller. His second novel (release thirteen years after Catch-22), it turns the focus of the same jaundiced eye from life in the military to the work and home life of Corporate Man living the American Dream. Something Happened has a much darker tone than its predecessor.
