Trivia

In the nineteen-sixties, Jerzy Kosinski had become famous in Manhattan literary circles for his astonishing tales about the brutalities he had suffered during the war. Abandoned by his parents at the age of six, he claimed, he had roamed the countryside alone, witnessing rape, murder, and incest, constantly fearing for his life. Kosinski turned those stories into his first novel, "The Painted Bird" (1965), which, for a time, was considered a major work of Holocaust literature. See more »
