Synopsis

Jerzy Kosiński was an award-winning Polish-American novelist. His novel, Steps , was the 1969 winner of the National Book Awards. This novel is comprised of a series of loosely connected vignettes. The book is meant to be shocking and brought the author close to celebrity status after winning the award. Steps begins with the narrator going to a zoo to see an octopus that is slowly killing itself by consuming its own tentacles. The piece ends with the narrator discovering that a woman he’s picked up off the street is actually a man. While some of the vignettes are connected to each other, some are not, but all of them are marked by concrete prose and lucidity of the narrative. The book explores themes of horror, repression, alienation, isolation and anxiety.

About World of Books Ltd

In 2002, World of Books Group was founded on an ethos to do good, protect the planet and support charities by enabling more goods to be reused. Since then, we've grown into to a global company pioneering the circular economy. Today, we drive the circular economy through three re-commerce brands:
- Wob: Through Wob, we sell. We provide affordable, preloved books and media to customers all over the world. A book leaves our collection of over seven million titles and begins a new chapter every two seconds, enabling more goods to be reused.
- Ziffit: Through Ziffit, we buy. We give people around the world the opportunity to contribute to the circular economy, earn money and protect the planet, by trading their unwanted books and media.
- Shopiago: Through Shopiago, we help others. By sharing the technology that has grown World of Books Group into the business it is today, we're helping charities increase revenue and reduce waste through re-commerce.
