Abstract:

"Through Kosinski's Lenses: Identity, Sex, and Violence is a critical examination of the literary work of Jerzy Kosinski (1933-1991). Once a source of international controversy, Kosinski now deserves to be studied for his artistic products, not his biography. Kosinski's work explores a world in flux and defies theoretical labels. His books offer an intelligent yet veiled examination of moral, political, and economic systems via stories than remain popular, intriguing, and disturbing. This analysis focuses on three of Kosinski's thematic lenses: identity, sex, and violence. Also featured are materials from the author's interviews with noted Kosinski scholars and friends - most importantly, with his widow, Mrs. Katherina von Fraunhofer-Kosinski."--BOOK JACKET.
