Biblio Love - Blind Date by Jerzy Kosinski

Every so often, I come across a book that has me saying things like, "wow", "what the?" and "really?" Blind Date by Jerzy Kosinski is one of those books. In this slim yet intriguing, engaging and well written novel we meet George Levanter: world traveler, investor of everything under the sun, lover of many women, sociopath, sometimes liar and manipulator and an all around guy of survival mentality. We learn of his many adventures all over the world, his somewhat detached relationships with women and his love of skiing. We also learn that he was his mother's lover for many years, raped a young girl when he attended camp as a teenager and survived horrible atrocities while still managing to come out on top. Jerzy Kosinski, author of such books Being There and The Painted Bird, does not leave anything to the imagination when it comes to Levanter's life and escapades. We must be ready for anything when it comes to Levanter, just like going on a blind date.
