Interesting autograph letter signed by Joseph Heller, who here mentions “Catch-22” and his struggles recovering from Guillain-Barre syndrome. Letter dated 16 January 1984 to James Nagel reads in full, “Dear Jim: No chance at all of our getting together this month. I’ve got a lot of catching up to do–occupational, therapeutic, financial–and don’t want to be diverted from any of the disciplines I’ve set for myself. Physically, I’m improving steadily and am able to take care of myself, but I’ve a long way to go yet to attain normal muscular strength. I work at it and see the benefits. About Catch-22 I doubt very much that I can give you anything new anymore in the way of knowledge. You undoubtedly know more about the book and the events surrounding it than I do. For me, it’s going back thirty years to its beginning, and I would not trust my memory. If you find yourself with questions of fact to be answered simply, I’ll help if I can. Beyond that, your guess will be as good as mine…better in fact. Regards to Gwen. Joe Heller”. Two page letter on single sheet of Heller’s personal stationery measures 5.75″ x 7.75″. Accompanied by original handwritten envelope. Near fine condition. (34192)
