The Goldfinch: A Novel (Pulitzer Prize for Fiction)
Donna Tartt
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, 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: PaperbackAuthor: Donna TarttPublisher: Back Bay BooksPublished: 04/07/2015ISBN: 9780316055444Pages: 784Weight: 1.70lbsSize: 9.20h x 6.00w x 1.30dReview Citations: People Weekly 04/27/2015 pg. 44New York Times Book Review 04/26/2015 pg. 28Entertainment Weekly 10/16/2015 pg. 113Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 165262 / GoldfinchReading Level: 6.6 / Interest Level: Upper Grade / Point Value: 49
