Joseph Heller's powerful, wonderfully funny, deeply moving novel is the story of David -- yes, King David -- but as you've never seen him before. You already know David as the legendary warrior king of Israel, husband of Bathsheba, and father of Solomon; now meet David as he really was: the cocky Jewish kid, the plagiarized poet, and the Jewish father. Listen as David tells his own story, a story both relentlessly ancient and surprisingly modern, about growing up and growing old, about men and women, and about man and God. It is quintessential Heller.

One of those books I've read a couple of times because there's new pleasure harvested with each read. Heller's masterpiece, though the uninformed might believe it was Catch 22.

One of my favorite books! This is the story of David, post Golliath, as you've never heard it before. Entertaining, funny, cleverly written. Would definitely add this to your "read" shelf if you haven't yet done so!
