Waiting on Wednesday – The Goldfinch: A Novel by Donna Tartt

Hi everybody! Thanks for stopping by. Today’s post is ‘Waiting on Wednesday’ which is a weekly blog feature hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we’re super excited about.
The Goldfinch: A Novel
by Donna Tartt
Expected publication: October 22nd 2013 by Little, Brown and Company
The author of the classic bestsellers The Secret History and The Little Friend returns with a brilliant, highly anticipated new novel.
A young boy in New York City, Theo Decker, miraculously survives an accident that takes the life of his mother. Alone and abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by a friend’s family and struggles to make sense of his new life. In the years that follow, he becomes entranced by one of the few things that reminds him of his mother: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the art underworld. Composed with the skills of a master, The Goldfinch is a haunted odyssey through present-day America, and a drama of almost unbearable acuity and power. It is a story of loss and obsession, survival and self-invention, and the enormous power of art.
I adored The Secret History. Tartt is quite the writer and while I’m not completely sold on this summary, I know I’ll be reading this regardless.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

    I remember Catie liking The Secret History SO MUCH. I promised myself I'd read it back then and I really will. I will also read this, I'm not one to shy away from super long books.
