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 Novelby Donna TarttExpected publication: October 22nd 2013 by Little, Brown and CompanyThe 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?
