I'm trying to find the title of a novel I read back in the 1990s. The only thing I recall about it is the somewhat absurdist premise of a man being hired to paint a green square on a patch of ground. Thanks in advance for your help!

As I recall, it was a hardcover edition, and was likely published between the 1960s-1990s. It took place during a contemporary time period. Written in English.

    Welcome to Literature SE! Can you remember any more details about this novel - e.g. was it hardback or paperback? thick novel or thin? any details about the cover? historical, modern, or futuristic? set in the real world or a fantasy one? what country/language was it written in? published in the 1990s, or much older? Anything else you can remember might help to narrow the search, and I'm sure you can jog more from your memory if you ask the right questions :-) – Rand al'Thor Dec 29 '17 at 21:46
