Why Joseph Heller's ‘Catch-22’ is a relevant antiwar satire in the age of Trump Joseph Heller's 1961 novel "Catch-22" is not only a Hulu series from George Clooney, it's satire that hits close to home. Only its misogyny didn't age well. America’s wars are scattered with the brave, rabid and opportunistic Catch-22, which received mixed reviews, was originally called Catch-18 Instead, Yossarian puts a hand up her skirt and another guy grabs her bosoms The doctor is a brooding hypochondriac; a lieutenant’s cheeks shake with gusts of anguish
