Jerzy Kosinski was a great enigma of post-World War II literature. When he exploded onto the American literary scene in 1965, he was revered as a Holocaust survivor and refugee from the world hidden behind the Soviet Iron Curtain. But soon the facade began to crack, and behind the public persona emerged a ruthless social climber, sexual libertine, and pathological liar who may have plagiarized his greatest works. This most American story of personal disintegration is told through the voices of multiple narrators--a homicidal actor, a dominatrix, and Joseph Stalin's daughter--who each provide insights into the shifting facets of Kosinski's personality.
