Being There

Being There

Jerzy Kosinski


A smooth vintage now to be had from Grove Press, Being there's essentially the most well known and critical works from a author of overseas stature. it's the tale of Chauncey Gardiner - likelihood, an enigmatic yet unique guy who emerges from nowhere to turn into an inheritor to the throne of a Wall highway mogul, a presidential coverage adviser, and a media icon. actually "a guy with out qualities," Chance's basic responses to renowned issues are heralded as visionary. yet notwithstanding everyone seems to be quoting him, nobody is certain what he is rather asserting. And filling within the blanks in his historical past proves very unlikely. Being there's a brilliantly satiric examine the unreality of yankee media tradition that's, if something, extra trenchant now than ever.
