About this title

Synopsis:

He was one of the world's great writers & intellectuals, acclaimed as a heroic survivor & witness of the Holocaust. He won high literary awards, made the bestseller lists, lectured in prestigious universities, & was feted in high society. Then, in an expose that sent shock waves throughout the intellectual community, he was denounced as a CIA tool, a supreme con man, & a literary fraud, igniting a firestorm of controversy that consumed his reputation & culminated in his headline-making suicide. This compelling biography cuts to the complex heart of the truth about the man & the myth that was Jerzy Kosinski. Photos.

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."
