Nope! It's much more straightforward, actually.

It's an American novel from the 1950s by an acclaimed writer/painter/thinker.

Ok, here's another clue:

First, a famous quote from the novel:
"One’s destination is never a place, but rather a new way of looking at things."

Second, a famous quote by the author:
"I am glad to be a maggot in the corpse which is the world."

Just add up the images and you'll find out the title.

...ah I see it now...Henry Miller's 'Big Sur and the Oranges of Hieronymus Bosch'. It seems so obvious now!
