Book Summary

Originally published in 1965, The Painted Bird established Jerzy Kosinski as a major literary figure.  Called by the Los Angeles Times "one of the most imposing novels of the decade," it was eventually translated into more than thirty languages.

A harrowing story that follows the wanderings of a boy abandoned by his parents during World Was II, The Painted Bird is a dark masterpiece that examines the proximity of terror and savagery to innocence and love.  It is the first, and the most famous, novel by one of the most important and original writers of the century.
