About this title

Synopsis:

Drawing on Kosinski's papers, interviews with his family, and research in Eastern Europe, a biography of the late novelist covers his wartime childhood in Poland, his strange sex life, and his suspected ties to the CIA. 35,000 first printing. $35,000 ad/promo.

Review:

Hailed as an important young author and thinker with the publication of The Painted Bird, winner of the National Book Award, Jerzy Kosinski ended his life amid allegations of fraud and plagiarism. With accuracy and understanding, Sloan undertakes the unraveling of a complex and confusing life, one that experienced the horrors of the Holocaust, the oppression of totalitarianism, the fruits of celebrity, and the consequences of lies, offering an all-too-human view of a man described as "part victim, part charlatan, and part genius."
