Kosinski’s controversial and compelling modern classic is
available for the first time on audio.
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 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 the century. Download and start listening now!
