Jerzy Kosinski was born in Lodz, Poland, in 1933. He arrived in the United States in 1957, where he completed his graduate and postgraduate education. Despite his late emigration, Kosinski wrote only in English. His first novel, The Painted Bird, won the French Prix du Meilleur Livre Etranger for the best foreign work of fiction. His second novel, Steps, won the 1969 National Book Award.

Kosinski's non-fiction works include literary criticism and two volumes on collective behavior, The Future is Ours, Comrade, and No Third Path, which were written under the pen name of Joseph Novak. His books have been translated into every major language.
