Heller's King David, a splendid creation, is not so much a man for all seasons as man in all his seasons" ("The New York Times Book Review").This zany, sexy version of the story of King David, told as a modern allegory of what it is like for a Jew to survive in a hostile world, is "original, sad, wildly funny, and filled with roaring. . . .

God Knows expresses King David's anger with God. David tells his story in bits and pieces, seguing from one event to another. It's a love story, told by a man angry with God over the loss of his son. It is bittersweet, and absolutely hilarious. Best of all, it is a novel worth reading just for the last sentence. (Don't peek! You'll lose the effect.)
