The Catch-22 Sandwich

Just when Ol’ Matty thinks he’s got it made, escaping the island, making a new best friend, headed to a new island of wine and people, he start to suspect a strange truth when he is drafted into World War II. Ol’ Matty and his new-new best friend Yo-Yo navigate the perils of the war and, worse, Joseph Heller’s ultimate paradoxical tragedy Catch-22. Thrilling dogfights, tomatoes and potato peelers bloodily fly with Ol’ Matty through the bullet drenched sky as Ol’ Matty comes to learn Joseph Heller’s ultimate truth and confirms his initial suspicion: People are trash, and that may just make life worth living. Damn you, you beautiful Catch-22.

The Robinson Crusoe Sandwich

Ol’ Matty confronts his arch-nemesis and escapes all of his enemies to find some reprieve, reading on a beach, when he is discovered by a friendly fellow castaway named Rob. Ol’ Matty liberally makes himself way too much at home in Rob’s impressive fortifications, and derives a sandwich from the ultimate castaway tale, while he derides the ultimate castaway, the archetypal novel adventure Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe, published in 1714. In spite of it being the tri-centennial of this story, Ol’ Matty insists it’s not at all stale nor mouldy. Time will tell, as will his bowels.

The King Solomon's Mines Sandwich

Freed from the catacombs, Ol' Matty is now pursued by a vengeful M16 packing bear and has somehow used his "charms" to befriend a secret kingdom of hunters. Surprisingly civil, Ol' Matty decides to repay them with a Delicious Word Sandwich, regaling the story of King Solomon's Mines by H. Rider Haggard, which can only go well because it's not too colonialist. Idiot.

The Sun Also Rises Sandwich

Published in 1926, Ernest Hemingway told the spicy, dramatic tale of a group of passionate and broken expatriates spending a wine-hazed week at the Pamplona Fiesta, where all their interpersonal dramas come to full boil. Things are heating up for Ol' Matty, too, as he finds seducing a volcano for a ride out of the Center of the Earth was more than he bargained for. I'm not even surprised anymore. Sure, seduce a volcano.

Journey to the Center of the Earth Sandwich

Published in 1864, Jules Verne began his journey into becoming the Father of Science Fiction with this science-adventure classic theorising a subterranean, prehistoric world existing deep under the earth's surface (and potentially within the human psyche). How Ol' Matty thinks this will help him out of the catacombs, Zeus freakin' knows.

The Snows of Kilimanjaro Sandwich

Ol' Matty makes both his great return and his official debut as he rises from the dead to kill some manjaros and transform Ernest Hemingway's classic short story "The Snows of Kilimanjaro" into its sandwich form, with all the hard-hitting flavour of four novels in one and the burnt out souls at their centre. I had to try so hard to convince him not to burn every ingredient. So. Hard.
