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 eventuallly translated into more than thirty languages.

A harrowing story that follows the wanderings of a boy abandoned by his parents during World War 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 this century.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"One of the best. . . . Written with deep sincerity and sensitivity."--Elie Wiesel, The New York Times Book Review

"A powerful blow on the mind because it is so carefully kept within the margins of probability and fact."--Arthur Miller

"Of all the remarkable fiction that emerged from World War II, nothing stands higher than Jerzy Kosinski's The Painted Bird. A magnificent work of art, and a celebration of the individual will. No one who reads it will be unmoved by it. The Painted Bird enriches our literature and our lives."--Jonathan Yardley, The Miami Herald

"Extraordinary . . . literally staggering . . . one of the most powerful books I have ever read."--Richard Kluger, Harper's Magazine
