Book Description
 

PICTURE THIS by Joseph Heller - FIRST EDITION BOOK

The novel is an eclectic historical journey across multiple periods of history, all connected by a single painting: Rembrandt van Rijn's Aristotle Contemplating a Bust of Homer. The work jumps from the golden age of Athens, to 17th Century Holland, to the rise of the American Empire; hopscotching from Aristotle, to Rembrandt, to Socrates, and back to Heller and even Jimmy Carter.

It examines fundamental dichotomies in human existence under the guise of satire.
