Yossarian lives- in Pakistan at that!

Reading Mohammad Hanif's A Case of Exploding Mangoes. What a dead sexy writer- he had me at the very first page itself! I was instantly reminded of Joseph Heller's Catch 22, a book I'd read about zillions of times. Hanif's hero Shigri is so much like Heller's Yossarian- which makes me very happy indeed. The world could do with more like him! Back to the deliciously funny book now.
