In return for the finest cooking in the land and the wages of a minor prophet, Ethan must write a proper record, full of glory and battles, statecraft and honor--a tribute to David and, of course, to Solomon, his heir.

But as Ethan explores the story, he finds another life hidden behind the iron curtain dividing past from present: the story of a David who seduced, lied, bragged, and plundered his way to power. Ethan wonders: which life should be reported in the King David Report?Written by one of Germanys most acclaimed dissident authors, The King David Report is both an analysis of the writers obligations to truth, and an astute satire on the workings of history and politics in a totalitarian state.
