“A dazzling succession of . . . erotic episodes . . . Cockpit defines itself (as Kosinski does his hero) by the suicidal chances it takes . . . brilliantly defying the limitations of its form.” The New York Times Book Review

Cockpit is a debriefing after a long, tortuous mission. An agent known only as Tarden is a former operative of the mysterious security agency “the Service.” He has erased himself from all dossiers and transcripts. Now a fugitive, he moves across the landscape free of identity, in search of adventure and intrigue. But Tarden is a man of many disguises, and he is alternately avenger and savior, judge and trickster, as he enters the lives of others, forcing them into the arena of his judgment. In Cockpit Kosinski is at his most startling and powerful, stripping away pretension and illusions of security to reveal the source of real strength within.
