PW Online Book Club


Ok, at the urging of one of our more literate contributers, we kick off the trial run here of the PW Book Club. The first selection has been made and is: The Painted Bird by Jerzy N. Kosinski. Beg, borrow, or steal a copy and read by the first week of February if you wish to contribute. Let's see how this bird flys.

the introduction is a really great bit and worth the read. Kosinski, even in his older age is an incredible survivor and a man of his own making (see the story of the intruders in the intro). at p.100 the book has been captivatingly dark and captured a misery that i figured would be unknown to most, let alone an 8 year old boy.
