Joseph Heller was born in Brooklyn in 1923. In 1961, he published Catch-22, which became a bestseller and, in 1970, a film. He went on to write such novels as Good as Gold, God Knows, Picture This, Closing Time (the sequel to Catch-22), and Portrait of an Artist, as an Old Man. Heller died in December 1999.
Excellent book - love the writing style. Humorous, sarcastic, well-written. I read Catch-22 and it wasn't anything like this. I'm loving it!Published 1 month ago by G. Warnock
I love this book. I think it's funnier than Catch-22; however, I am aware that some people may find it offensive.Published 8 months ago by William Plumlee
I can see why this book isn't for everyone. It's unique. The story of the old testament, told by King David while on his deathbed. Read morePublished 13 months ago by A. Nelson

This was a disappointing book. It was long on sex and short on being a gripping read. Maybe its me, but I thought it was boring, a slog.Published 22 months ago by Amazon Customer
Old Testament tales told through the eyes of King David. Puts history into perspective by sometimes popping in and out of the centuries. Very creative touch. Read morePublished on July 26, 2011 by OLD GUY.
