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
