“This Is The House That Jack Built” is a book named after a nursery rhyme, a cumulative tale of a string of events in which, despite the repetitive mentions of his home, we never learn who Jack is. The subject of the book is the world-class collection of contemporary art assembled by the Hoffmann-La Roche heiress Maja Hoffmann, who would prefer, like Jack, to remain behind the scenes.
