Students more accustomed to computer screens than manual typewriters are getting a chance to sit at author Joseph Heller's stained wooden desk and type on the battered Smith-Corona he used to compose his acclaimed novel "Catch-22."
Bucker said his own students "think a typewriter is a museum piece. They need to know that writing was a completely different process before the computer."
Bucker said some students enjoy Heller's dark humor in "Catch-22," while others may find its "episodic nature" and changes of time frame frustrating.
