Blind Date : Jerzy Kosinski, the author of Being There and The Painted Bird, delivers an enthralling psychological novel and a spectacular hero in Blind Date.
George Levanter is a mystery -- an international character whose life is delivered in a series of scorching vignettes, each more unbelievable than the last. From Moscow to Paris, from a Manhattan skyscraper to a California mass murder, Blind Date is a slashing, dizzying vision of life as few see it. Kosinski is a master storyteller, spinning the shocking and beautiful tales of the supersonic thrill-seekers. For him, sex opens the door; always mysterious, never fully discovered, it reveals the truth of life. Brutal coincidence is destiny.
This is the incredible story of Levanter, a hero adrift in a tangle of adventurers -- the loveless, the lovers, the deformed. Each offers a hasty consummation. Each is a full, curious stop on a race to the most important blind date of all.
