The Goldfinch, Donna Tartt’s long-awaited third novel is a powerful drama of loss, love and fate. The 784 page bestseller follows the grieving 13-year old Theo, who has lost his mother in a terrorist bombing. After being taken in by the family of a wealthy friend, the teenager becomes preoccupied with a mysterious 17th century painting, the only thing which reminds him of her. Down the years he continues to cling to this painting of a small bird, which ultimately draws him into the criminal underworld and an ever more dangerous circle.
As recent winner of the Pulitzer Prize 2014, The Goldfinch has been described by Columbia University as “a beautifully written coming-of-age novel … that stimulates the mind and touches the heart”.
It is a joy for new fans as well as longstanding admirers of Donna Tartt’s accomplished writing.
