WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE "The Goldfinch is a rarity that comes along perhaps half a dozen times per decade, a smartly written literary novel that connects with the heart as well as the mind....Donna Tartt has delivered an extraordinary work of fiction."--Stephen King, The New York Times Book Review Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don't know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by his longing for his mother, he clings to the one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of art. As an adult, Theo moves silkily between the drawing rooms of the rich and the dusty labyrinth of an antiques store where he works. He is alienated and in love--and at the center of a narrowing, ever more dangerous circle. The Goldfinch is a mesmerizing, stay-up-all-night and tell-all-your-friends triumph, an old-fashioned story of loss and obsession, survival and self-invention, and the ruthless machinations of fate.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Donna TarttPublisher: Little Brown and CompanyPublished: 10/22/2013ISBN: 9780316055437Pages: 784Weight: 2.40lbsSize: 9.40h x 6.40w x 1.80dAward: Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction - FinalistAward: ALA Notable Books - WinnerAward: Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence - WinnerAward: National Book Critics Circle Award - FinalistAward: Pulitzer Prize - WinnerReview Citations: Library Journal Prepub Alert 05/01/2013 pg. 59Publishers Weekly 07/29/2013Entertainment Weekly 08/02/2013 pg. 69Kirkus Reviews Fall Preview 08/15/2013 pg. 16Booklist 09/01/2013 pg. 38Kirkus Reviews 09/01/2013 pg. 26Romantic Times 10/01/2013 pg. 46 - ExcellentPeople Weekly 09/23/2013 pg. 71New York Times Book Review 10/13/2013 pg. 1Entertainment Weekly 10/18/2013 pg. 70New Yorker (The) 10/21/2013 pg. 100New York Times Book Review 10/20/2013 pg. 26People Weekly 10/28/2013 pg. 55Kirkus Best Fiction 11/15/2013 pg. 37Shelf Awareness 12/13/2013NY Times Notable Bks of Year 12/08/2013 pg. 26New York Times Book Review 12/15/2013 pg. 12Entertainment Weekly 12/27/2013 pg. 101New York Review of Books 01/09/2014 pg. 10People Weekly 12/30/2013 pg. 56Entertainment Weekly 01/24/2014 pg. 21Booklist Editors Choice/Adult 01/01/2014 pg. 10People Weekly 02/10/2014 pg. 59Entertainment Weekly 03/21/2014 pg. 67Christian Century 12/10/2014 pg. 26BookPage 11/01/2013Library Journal 05/01/2013Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 165262 / GoldfinchReading Level: 6.6 / Interest Level: Upper Grade / Point Value: 49
