Summary:
A novel fictionalizing the composition of a novel by burned-out writer Norbert Kosky. The fictional author Kosky is presented as a tantric Jew, macho enigma, and first-rate second-rate novelist--generally bearing an uncanny resemblance to the actual author, Kosinski. The resulting text is is pun-filled and accompanied by copious scholarly footnotes, demonostrating the author's obsession with the Holocaust, cabala, literary theory, and girlie magazines.
