  • True story, Word of Honor:#
  • Joseph Heller, an important and funny writer now dead, and I were at a party given by a billionaire on Shelter Island.#
  • I said, “Joe, how does it make you feel to know that our host only yesterday may have made more money than your novel Catch-22 has earned in its entire history?”#
  • And Joe said, “I’ve got something he can never have.”#
  • And I said, “What on earth could that be, Joe?”#
  • And Joe said, “The knowledge that I’ve got enough.”#
  • Not bad! Rest in peace!#
