Historical Highlight for Joseph Heller Joseph Heller was born on May 1, 1923, in Brooklyn, New York, to unfortunate Russian- Jewish settlers. Joseph Heller would grow to one of the most powerful and regarded scholars of post-present-day American literature with the distribution of his first novel, Catch-22, in 1961. Heller experienced his childhood on Coney Island and was raised by his mom from the age of five, after the troublesome demise of his dad, who worked as a truck driver in a local bakery. As a juvenile, in spite of keeping up an affection for writing, Heller had noted in a few interviews that he encountered little literature impact all through his youth, aside from Homer's epic The Iliad. Therefore, different pundits have proposed that Heller's dull, wry comical inclination had started not from literary motivation, but instead his ruined condition in the shadows of the ceaselessly cheerful Coney Island Amusement Park.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
