ftajae The Jewieh rTpridian of Qraa\tae Fort UttderdjJ* / Friday, November 2.1964
Finally: Novelist Heller Tackles A Jewish Thei
Copyright Baltimore Jewish Times
Reprint by Special Arrangement
Joseph Heller used to be sskeo
why he hadn't written a Jewish
novel. It was probably a logical
question for a successful
American novelist with Hebraic
genes. After all, people like Philip
Roth and Saul Bellow and
Bernard Malamud had grappled
in print with "the Jewish ex-
perience in America." Some
rarely wrote of anything else.
Why, went the frequent question
at Heller's readings, should he be
any different from the rest of the
literary pack?
In his first book, Catch-22,
Heller had tried to make some
sense out of the Army. Maybe he
could make some sense out of
being Jewish in the land of the
garment industry, JAPS, and
Judaic upward mobility.
questions to heart and, four years
ago, gave us Good As Gold, a
savvy, bitter, jaundiced attack
on the Jewish family and Jewish
But Heller hand't milked the
Jewish experience for all it was
worth. Maybe the Jewish ex-
perience in America, but not the
Jewish experience. Heller's new
book, God Knows, is all about
being Jewish. It's also about love
and romance and the struggle for
power and the struggle to live.
It's about faith, faith in God and
faith in self, and the longing to
have back one's youth, a time
when the simple answers seemed
to satisfy the complex and nasty
questions that baffle us as we get
God Knows is about the David
of the Bible, an unlikely subject
for a man whose previous three
books were more contemporary
and topical.
Before God Knows, Heller
wrote out of his own time and,
often, out of his own experience.
His 60 missions as a bombardier
in World War II gave him
enough anger and distress to
produce Catch-22.
HIS STINT as promotion
director for Time gave him
Something Happened, a mordant
comment on the bureaucracy of
the corporation. His cynicism
about politics and academics
gave him Good As Gold. Nothing
but inspiration and "the desire to
write a love story" gave him God
"I thought I might write a love
story because I didn't know what
one was," Heller told me. "From
there, my mind somehow went to
David. I had some knowledge of
David and Bathaheba. But I
could have just as well gone to
Anthony and Cleopatra. The few
episodes I remembered from
David's life seamed to lend
themselves to a novel that might
or might not be a love story, a
novel that could be both funny
and deadly serious."
Heller hadn't touched the Bible
in years. He opened it up "and
was absolutely ecstatic" at the
treasures he had found. "There
were treasures of two kinds. One
was the number of adventures
and episodes in David's life. The
other was the elements of tragedy
and grief."
Heller will probably always
associate God Knows with
tragedy and grief. After writing
the first three chapters of the
book, he was struck with
Guillain-Barre syndrome, a
bizarre form of paralysis that
strikes without warning. Each
year, about 19 people per million
get the disease, which invades
the nervous system when the
body's immune defenses backfire.
EARLY IN December, 1961,
Heller had trouble swallowing.
The next day, his arms were weak
and he was tired. He was checked
into the intensive care unit at
New York's Mt. Sinai Hospital
that afternoon. Within 10 days,
he could barely move.
"I hid from myself the fact
that I was seriously ill. I did it by
denying the amount of anxiety I
felt in intensive care. The first
night I was there, the man next
to me died. Every few days,
somebody would die. After three
or four days, I was scared stiff
without realizing it. I was afraid
to go to sleep, but I was dying for
sleep. My eyes kept falling shut,
but I kept snapping my head up.
I felt if I fell off to sleep, I would
never wake up."
Heller was assured by a
psychiatrist that he was not
psychotic. "If I had any different
reaction to being there," he was
told, "then there was reason to
worry. Consciously, I was not
afraid of dying or of permanent
paralysis. Unconsciously, I
suppose I was scared stiff."
Mel Brooks, said Heller, "was
drawn just by the sheer horror of
the disease. Dustin Hoffman
brushed Heller's teeth for him.
He soon returned with a list of
Guillain-Barre symptoms he
was afraid he, too, would get it.
"Mario Puzo felt ill just
walking into intensive care,"
Heller said, "and wanted to leave
Heller left the hospital five
months later. A friend and a day
nurse cared for him, first at his
small Manhattan apartment and
then at his Easthampton home at
the tip of Long Island. It wasn't
until 14 months after contracting
the disease that he was able to
stand up by himself.
"I call myself 100 percent
recovered," Heller said, "but the
doctors don't. Tremendous
atrophy sets in with the disease. I
doubt if there's a muscle that's
fully recovered." Heller still
doesn't have full use of his
tongue and left arm.
By the summer of 1982, Heller
was able to resume writing God
Knows. There is a "grotesque
similarity," he said, between
certain scenes in the book and his
bout with Guillain-Barre. "It was
not lost on me that I was in a
similar position as King David. I
was confined to bed, unable to
take care of myself. I can in-
terpret that as God giving me a
warning. Or as God giving me a
punishment. Or it was purely
illness influenced the book. He
had already written note cards
with dialogue and description for
God Knows, the "signposts" he
needs before tackling the actual
^Jewish Floridian
fit I.HI WIN I CUM I II IllUlitl 1
Heller's God is
a practical joker
on a cosmic scale
writing of a book. And he denies
that the illness had any per-
manent effect on his personality.
"I was told by friends during the
long period of rehabilitation that
I was a more patient, more
likeable person than before. Now,
more and more, I hear from
friends the comment, He must
be all better. He's bis old self
again.' "
Did Heller learn anything from
his paralysis? "Only that you
should have lots of major medical
Heller knew little about the
Bible before he began God
Knows. "And," he claims, "I
know very little more now."
The latter statement is a
modest one. After spending four
years with the Bible, Joe Heller
can rattle off the names of
prophet after prophet, warrior
after warrior, concubine after
concubine: Adonijah, Abishai,
Abishag the Shunammite, Zadok
the young priest, Barzillai the
Oileadote. Unlike Adam and
Esau and Noah and Lot and his
unfortunate wife, these are not
household names.
THE OSMOSIS of 48 months
of reading and re-reading and
indexing and cross-indexing the
characters and the incidents of
David's life have given Heller a
familiarity with the Old Testa-
ment that could make a Biblical
scholar envious.
There is a certain incongruity
about sitting in the Jockey Club
the Ritz Carlton in
novelist. He lives among writers
and painters in Easthampton.
His home is a converted far-
mhouse with a swimming pool
and several acres and a great deal
of privacy. His conversation is
Uttered with the names of such
friends as Mel Brooks, Carl
Reiner, Tony Curtis, Kurt
Vonnegut, Tom Brokaw, Mary
McCarthy. But the names of
lesser known friends also crop up
in the same conversation:
"Speed" Vogel, Marvin Winkler,
George Mandel, Julius Green.
Most are old friends from the old
neighborhood. Most have
nothing to do with show business
or literature.
"As I get older," Heller said,
"I feel most comfortable with my
own past." A few years ago,
Heller said he didn't think be
"deserved all the money" his
books had earned. "It puts me
into a social class for which I
have very little sympathy."
THAT ALSO holds true today.
"I'm still not comfortable with
rich people. But," he smiled.
"I'm not comfortable with poor
people, either. Go figure."
As a boy, Heller lived in the
Coney Island section of
Brooklyn. It was "a wonderful
neighborhood to grow up in.
There were so many kids.
Everywhere you went, there were
huge numbers of kids. And we
were always joking around. The
same land of joking that I now
see on the streets of New York
among black kids and Puerto
Kican kids not the white

suits on all the gents and enough
jewelry on the women to break
the bank at Monte Carlo.
But, then, there is a certain
incongruity to Heller. He doesn't
quite belong here. Although he
hasnt lived in Brooklyn since
1942, the old neighborhood is still
very much with him. It's in his
accent. It's in his laugh

Such double-binds abound in

hia family's exploitation by the
oil companies: "Every place we
pitched our tent, they sank an oil

Some of those invitations were
mighty generous, but we couldn't

were Indians and all the beet
hotels that were inviting us
wouldn't accept Indiana aa
Despite extensive advertising
by hia publisher for Catch-22, it
waa eight months before Heller
waa asked for an interview. It
waa one year before the book's
rights were sold to the movies. It
wasn't until 1970 nine years
after publication that the movie
waa released.
By then Catch-22 had finally
begun to sell. Its account of
trying to keep one'a sanity in the
middle of an insane situation
war dovetailed with the
national frustration and con-
fusion and rage over Vietnam.
Heller left advertising to become
a Distinguished Professor of
English at the City College of
New York, s position with a title
that flattered hia ago and with
enough flexible time so he could
do more writing.
THE PHRASE. "Catch-22,"
haa entered the language. It has
been uaed in at least one Supreme
Court decision. It has earned
Heller a certain literary im-
mortality (aa well as a very
handsome buck). He ia invariably
introduced aa the man who wrote
Catch-22, not as the man who
wrote Something Happened or
Good As Gold. Heller denies that
he feela captive to Catch-22. "No,
it's made life eaaier for me. It's a
very proud achievement. My
next book might be a sequel
about some of the characters in
When Heller's second book.
Something Happened, waa
publiahed b 1976, he finally felt
secure enough to leave teaching
and spend all his time writing.
Something Happened is a more
mature book, a more interesting
book than Catch-22. It is also a
less entertaining book.
Many people say that nothing
happens m Something Hap-
pened. That ia the black joke of
the book. Nothing much does
happen in the maw of the cor-
poration where Something
Happened ia set. The book is
coupled to the slow, tedious pace
of life in the world of offices and
memos and titles that imply that
someone ia an assistant to
someone who isn't too far up the
corporate ladder and will always
stay juat about where he is.
BOB SLOCUM, the non-hero
of Something Happened, is Jew-
ish, Heller confided to me. "I
didn't identify him aa Jewish
because I didn't want him to
obsess on that. And discerning
people know that Yossarian (in
Catch-22) is Jewish, too. His
compassion for other people ia
very Jewish."
Heller spent half as long on his
next book as he had on his
previous two only four years.
Good As Gold was Heller's foray
into "the Jewish novel." Much of
it did not endear him to the Jew-
ish community. He wrote in a
snickering, combative way about
a Jewish family in Coney Island,
one that gets extraordinary
pleasure from non-stop bickering,
competitive preening, audacious
bragging and talented put-
Heller claims that the Gold
family was not based on his own
family. Much of the Gold's
nastineaa, he said, came from hia
imagination; some came from hia
buddy Mel Brooks' stories of his
own childhood.
Good As Gold deviated from
Heller's regular story-telling. Hia
previous books were cynical; the
same incidents came up again
and again, told from a different
vantage or with a new wrinkle.
Good As Gold haa a traditional
WITH God Knows, Heller
returns to writing books "the
way my mind works best." God
Knows ia more commentary than
novel. Told by the 70-year old
King David from his deathbed,
it's a collection of cantankerous,
curmudgeonly jokes and set-ups
about the Bible. It's the Old
Testament playing the Keith-
Albee vaudeville circuit:
burlesque jokea about Sarah and
Abraham and all the multitudes
their seed produced. One can
almost aee King David coming
out on stage juat after Burns and
Allen wrap up their act. Fat cigar
in hand, his regal wit haa 'em
rolling in the aisles. He might not
be much of a monarch, but give
the guy a few howlers and he's
Heller's David ia not the
Bible's David. He's cranky and
jealous. Michelangelo, he says,
did a better job with his statue of
Moses than he did with him.
Shakespeare stole hia best plots
from him.
Hia son, Solomon, was a dolt, a
numbskull. Thinking he was
being fair, not shrewd, he waa
"dead serious when he proposed
cutting that baby in half, that
BUT DAVID is also sad.
Bragging about hia military
victories, all be longs for is to lie
once again with Bathahebe;
sounding off about hia political
coupe, he still mourns the death
of several children. King of all Is-
rael, David ia not a happy man.
It ia obvious that Heller had
fun with the Bible, especially its
language, which can be seen as
either poetic or clumsy,
depending on your mood.
Reminiscing about hia first
dalliance with the beauty
Bathsheba, aged King David
remembers with delight, "Oh,
boy, did I cleave to her!"
King Saul, furious at his son
Jonathan for meeting with David
behind his back, calls him "a
confusion to hia mother's
nakedness." The phrase, which
Heller lifts directly from the
Bible, makes little sense to
"David," he says, "you're
smart, maybe you can figure it
David, stumped, haa about as
much luck with the words as
most modern readers of the Bible.
God Knows is not about
religion, Heller said. "The Bible
is not about religion until you get
very, very far past where I go
with David. There's almost
nothing about religion in the Old
Testament. The moat they did in
the way of prescribed religious
practices was to sacrifice a lamb
every now and then."
of the Covenant to Jerusalem
seems aa much an act of
demagoguery as anything else
an excuse to have a parade. The
religious and spiritual element
doesn't come in until you reach
that period of the prophets that
more or less corresponds to the
threat of the Babylonians and the
Jews' capture by them. Then,
there's much more talk about
There isn't too much talk of
God in God Knows, either. When
Heller does bring Him into the
book. He turns out to be aa much
of s aecond banana aa David.
Always with the jokea, Heller a
God ia a practical joker on a
cosmic scale. Asked by Moses
one day whether he ia a good
God, God thunders:
Where does it say I have to be
good? Isn't it enough I'm God?
Don't waste your time
daydreaming, Moses. I ordered
Abraham to be circumcised when
he waa already a grown man.
Waa that the act of someone
who's Idnd?"
Chosen People got a bum deal.
God promised the Jews "a land of
olive trees and honey." 'Theta
what he promised and that's all
he gave us, along with a com-
plicated set of restrictive dietary
laws that have not made life
easier. To the goyim he gives
bacon, sweet pork, juicy sirloin,
and rare prime ribs of beef. To us,
he gives a pastrami. In Egypt, we
get the fat of the land. In
Leviticus, He prohibits us from
eat in* it."
One can hear Heller, not
David, kvetching here. Heller
eagerly admits that one of hia
"favorite exercises" is eating. He
ia horrified by anything that
restricts anyone's diet.
One can also hear Heller when
he haa God saying, "If you want
to have sense, you cant' have a
religion." Four years with the
Bible and King David have not
made him more religious than
"I CAME AWAY with no new
wisdom," he said. "I believe
there's an innate wish to believe
there'a a compassionate diety.
But you can view God as a myth,
a fairy tale or a legend. I have no
respect for the Bible other than
as a work of literature. I certainly
don't regard it as the word of
God. I know as much about God
as anyone on earth. Which ia to
say, there's no way to know
anything about him. Go figure."
Until recently, Heller was
"indifferent" about being Jewish.
"My tolerance as a liberal," he
said, "made me try to recognize
no ethnic barriers. Now, I feel
more comfortable not about
Judaism, but about being Jew-
ish. It's something I not only
want to acknowledge, but want
to embrace. Maybe that's what
happens aa you get gloser to the
Heller insists that there ia little
of him in God Knows aside from
"the humor and irony and
sentiment." But hia King David
is not unlike Heller. He ia a man
who haa done it all and seen it all
at least all that could be done
and seen in the Middle East of
the 10th Century, BCE. At three
score end ten years, Heller ia a
man searching for some sense in
hia life. "I want my God back,"
David aaya ruefully, "and they
send me a girl."
potent, the moat beautiful virgin
Id Israel tries to give him
comfort. Warmth he gets, but not
satisfaction. That can come only
from hia God.
Heller ia now three score and
one years old. In the last four
years, he has been divorced,
paralysed end written a new
book. Always e private person,
he has become more of a
homebody. He ia now living with
the nurse who helped bring him
back to health.
The catch for Joaeph Heller
may be that God does know more
than he thinks, that there might
be some cosmic scheme out there
that takes care of people even
of beet-selling writers.
Go figure.

Can It Happen Here? A Time For Soul Searching.
for The First Time, In The Depths Of My Soul, I Wonder-
What Does The Democratic Party Really Stand For?
Where is the Democratic Party going in 1984? Has its direction actually changed from liberalism to an undemocratic
ideology? From speaking out against bigotiy to remaining silent to gain votes? I cannot forget that less than 50 years ago
in Germany, the people stood silently by while the Nazis smashed synagogues and beat and murdered Jews. The silence
was devastating. It was a silence heard round the world. A silence that allowed a genocide unparalleled in the history
of mankind. I ask myself how can I vote for a party that would compromise religious freedom for a few votes?
I see a party embracing a would-be candidate who sounds as if he is a spokesman for The Tliird World.
I see a party failing to speak out against overt anti-Semitism.
I see a party more interested in party unity than uniting against what is right and just.
I see a party that has failed to speak out strongly against the Russians' treatment of its Jews and dissidents such as Sakharov.
I see a party unclear about the strengths and future of America.
I find myself agreeing with what President Reagan and the Republican Party are saying and doing.
I find a Party and a President who speak out against anti-Semitism.
I find a Party and a President who speak out against the venom of Louis Farrakhan.
I find a Party and a President who speak out to the UN to stop its anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-Semitic tirades.
I find a Party and a President who are not naive and gullible about the policies and plans of the Soviet Union.
find a Party and a President that Israel says is one of the best administrations they have ever dealt with. One that fully realizes
*c importance of Israel as a friend and strategic ally.
I find a Pany and President who have consistently come to the aid of our friends and allies around the world.

First major season off excavations completed at Tel Miqne
The first major season of exca-
vations has been completed at
what could be the largest ar-
chaeological mound ("tell" in
Hebrew) from the biblical period
yet discovered in Israel.
- The site is Ekron, known today
as Tel Mique, about 10 miles in
land from the Mediterranean sea-
port of Ashdod. The excavation
work there is being carried out as
a joint project of the Hebrew
University Institute of Archaeo-
logy and the W.F. Albright
Institute of Archaeological Re-
search, in affiliation with the
American Schools of Oriental Re-
Ekron was one of the five
capital cities of the Philistines,
one of the ancient "Sea Peoples,"
who lived in Israel's southern
coastal region for aperiod of more
than 6000 years. They figure
prominently in the biblical narra-
tive dealing with the conquest
and settlement of the land of
Israel by the ancient Israelites.
The other five capital cities of the
Philistines were Ashkelon, Gaza,
Gath and Ashdod.

Hebrew University and Prof.
Seymour Gitin of the Albright

Directors of Temple Sha'aray

Prof. Trade Dothan of the

Institute are directors of the
excavation, which is projected to
continue over a tan-year period.
Dothan and gitin headed a staff
of some 75 professionals and vol-
unteers who worked at the dig in
the first season. Start-up funds
for the project and the excavation
camp were donated by the Dorot
Foundation. The National Geo-
graphic Society, Aurora (111.)
College, Boston College, Brown
University, the Harvard Semitic
Museum and the Israel Explora-
tion Society provided insti-
tutional support. The Jewish
National Fund has created a 3.5-
mile-long road from the nearby
Kubbutz Revadim to the excava-
The Tel Miqu-Ekron site has
revealed to the archaeologists, in
one six-week season of work, the
broad outlines of its entire
history: its beginnings in the
13th century BCE, the continuity
of its material culture, and its
ending in the 6th century BCE.
There are indications that the
visible low mound, first surveyed
by the famed American archaeo-
logist. W.F. Albright, in 1923-24
and comprising some 60 acres,
may be only the "tip of the ice-
berg." and that another 60 acres
or so may be lying beneath the
surrounding alluvial terrain. This
would establish the site as the
largest archaeological "td" from
the biblical period yet to be exca-
vated in Israel.

All About Medicare
Q: rm eligible for Medicare
coverage. However, I know that
Medicart does not pay for all the
medical bills I want to get some
private insurance to supplement
Medicate, but how can I find the
best one?
A: Health Care Financing
Administration (HCFA) has
published training text sjflad.
"Medicare and private health
insurance." I hope that you will
find helpful the following
summary of hint* for baying
private health insurance:
1. Do not buy more polices
than yon need, especially if these
policies duplicate each other.
2. Check for Pre-Exiotiag
Condition Exclusions and
Waiting Period*. Make sure that
you have this information in
writing. ft
3. Be careful about replacing
Existing Coverage. Make sure
that your current insurance will
cover you until a new policy
becomes effective.
4 Be aware of Maximum
Benefits. Check if the maximum
number of days or visits insured
will meet your needs.
5 Chech your right to renew.
Avoid policies that are
"renewable at company option."
6. Beware of the "Government
Look." Some insurance com-
panies imply government af-
filiation or endorsement by using
official-looking seals or addres-
sing correspondence to "Dear
Medicare Member."
7. Take yoor time shopping for
insurance. Compare different
policies for what they cover and
what they cost.
8. Beware of "Scare Tactics."
Advertisers often describe ex-
treme situations to frighten
9 Do not withhold Medical
Information, because you may
have problems with getting
payments from your insurance
10. Get a written outline of
coverage. Ask your agent for a
simplified version of the policy.
11. Do not pay cash. Always
pay by check, money order, or
bank draft made out to the in-
surance company never to the
agent or anyone else.
12. Blah* sure there is a Free
Look" provision. Moot reputable
insurance companies give you at
least tea days to change your
mind about their policies.
13. Ba aware of illegal sales
practices. Watch our for the
companies who knowingly sail
policies which duplicate Medicare
If you have any questions
regarding shopping for private
insurance, call your State
Insurance Department at 467-
Q. / heard that Medicare will
pay for the hospital stay even if
you have to stay longer than 90
days in one time period. My
neighbor says that you must sign
some papers if you don't want
Medicare to pay for these extra
days. Can you explain t
A. Medical hospital insurance
(Part A) provdos hfftflrieries
with so-called risarve days. You
can only have 60 days in your
lifetime. Unlike your regular 90
days, which are renewable each
mar banwadeaJv once. If rou ha
Margarita Fiks
ve to stay in the hospital' longer
than 90 days, you must notify the
hospital in writing ahead of time
incase your prefer not to use
yoar reserve days. Otherwise, the
hospital will use your reserve
days automatically. If you have a
good private supplemental in-
surance, they may take care of
these extra days. Keep in mind,
that when Medicare pays for the
reserve days, you will still be
responsible for $178 a day (in
1964) deductible.
Q. / saw a doctor in November,
1982. I was in the process of
getting my Medicare then. I paid
my doctor directly and never sent
my claim to Medicare. The bill
was for $226, and rd like to get
some money back from Medicare.
Am I too late for sending a claim
for this bill?
A. Medicare allows at least 15
months before a set deadline to
send in your claims for your
doctors' buls. December 31, 1984
is a deadline for the services
received between October 1,1982
aad September 30, 1983. If you
file your claim before the end of
the year, you may be reimbursed
for the November 1982 doctor's

Keep Justices
Ehrlich and Shaw
When the Florida Bar polled its members by secret ballot and asked whether
Justices Raymond Ehrlich and Leander Shaw should remain on the Florida Supreme
Court, nearly 9 out of 10 voted "Yes!"
Editorial writers, columnists and law enforcement officials across the state of
Florida have agreed:
'. both Shaw and Ehrlich have brought excellent
backgrounds to the court and considered outstanding jurists.
Robert Delaney, Editorial Writer

"We wish you (both) God Speed in your endeavor and
may the citizens of Florida, in their wisdom, vote over-
whelmingly to support your continued, valuable services to
us all."
Willis D. Booth, Executive Director

Honda citizens are fortunate to have Supreme Court
Justices who regard the Constitution as a vault for safekeep-
ing principles of government, not as a pantry easily opened
to special interests."
Tampa Tribune
October 21, 1984
"Wfe highly recommend that the people vote "yes" to
retain Supreme Court Justices Raymond Ehrlich and
Leander Shaw Jr. They are among the best justices on the
court. Their records have no blemishes. They are fair-minded
justices of even temperament. They have demonstrated
intellectual honesty, independence and integrity on the
bench. We know of no reason either justice should be
rejected for a second term."
St. Petersburg Times
"Should they be retained? We don't think there's any
question about it: The answer is yes.
"A justice's job is to interpret the law based on their
records of doing just that. Justices Leander Shaw Jr. and
Raymond Ehrlich deserve to remain on the Florida Supreme
The Orlando Seminal
October 18, 1984
'Citizens who believe in constitutional government and
an independent judiciary ought to rally strongly behind
Ehrlich and Shaw. They have good records."
The Tampa Tribune
August 6, 1984
"In fact, though they are the newest justices on the court,
they are among the best."
St. Petersburg Evening Independent
September 10, 1984
"Justices Ehrlich and Shaw deserve the unqualified and
strong support of every member of the Bar of this State.
Every opportunity should be taken to deliver the message
that a free and independent judiciary has always been the
true guardian of freedom in this nation."
