"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"--

"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. 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."--Publisher's description

The snow in the mountains was melting and Bunny had been dead for several weeks before we came to understand the gravity of our situation. In this brilliant debut novel, Donna Tartt gives us a richly textured and hypnotic story of golden youth corrupted by its own moral arrogance. Richard Papen had never been to New England before his nineteenth year. Then he arrived at Hampeden College and quickly became seduced by the sweet, dark rhythms of campus life -- in particular by an elite group of five students, Greek scholars, worldly, self-assured, and at first glance, highly unapproachable. Yet as Richard was accepted and drawn into their inner circle, he learned a terrifying secret that bound them to one another ... a secret about an incident in the woods in the dead of night where an ancient rite was brough to brutal life ... and lead to a gruesome death. And that was just the beginning

Der Distelfink by Donna Tartt( Recording )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in German and Undetermined and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Es passiert, als Theo Decker dreizehn Jahre alt ist. An dem Tag, an dem er mit seiner Mutter ein New Yorker Museum besucht, verändert ein schreckliches Unglück sein Leben für immer. Er verliert sie unter tragischen Umständen und bleibt allein und auf sich gestellt zurück, sein Vater hat ihn schon lange im Stich gelassen. Theo versinkt in tiefer Trauer, die ihn lange nicht mehr loslässt. Auch das Gemälde, das seit dem fatalen Ereignis verbotenerweise in seinem Besitz ist und ihn an seine Mutter erinnert, kann ihm keinen Trost spenden. Ganz im Gegenteil: Mit jedem Jahr, das vergeht, kommt er immer weiter von seinem Weg ab und droht, in kriminelle Kreise abzurutschen. Und das Gemälde, das ihn auf merkwürdige Weise fasziniert, scheint ihn geradezu in eine Welt der Lügen und falschen Entscheidungen zu ziehen, in einen Sog, der ihn unaufhaltsam mit sich reißt ...

Mississippi : power of place( Visual )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mississippi has always been known for its rich literary and musical heritage even though it also has the highest illiteracy rate of any state. It's been the home of William Faulkner, Eudora Welty, Tennessee Williams, and Muddy Waters. Today, a new generation of artists is emerging from this place that some say embodies the best of American culture, despite poverty and social ills. Through the artists profiled in this film, Barry Hannah (writer), David Malone (blues musician), Lewis Nordan (writer), Donna Tartt (writer) and Morgan Freeman (actor), we see how the spirit of place inspires their creativity
Sticletele by Donna Tartt( )

1 edition published in 2015 in Romanian and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theo Decker, un adolescent de treisprezece ani din New York, supraviețuiește ca prin minune unei explozii care îi omoară mama într-un muzeu de artă și intră fără voia lui în posesia unui mic tablou fascinant, preferatul mamei sale. Ani de zile mai târziu, după o copilărie aventuroasă, Theo lucrează într-un magazin de antichități, iar tabloul ascuns cu grijă ani de zile devine pe neașteptate poarta de acces către lumea subterană a traficului cu opere de artă.O poveste plină de suspans, meșteșugită meticulos, asemenea unui tablou flamand, despre iubire și artă, despre pierdere și obsesie, despre supraviețuire și modelarea propriului destin, toate supuse întorsăturilor imprevizibile și nemiloase ale sorții.„Un triumf. Donna Tartt ne oferă o operă de ficțiune excepțională." (Stephen King)„Un roman dickensian superb, seducător, care te ține cu sufletul la gură fără să-și piardă nici o clipă energia narativă." (New York Times)„O carte despre artă în toate formele sale." (Vanity Fair)„O elegantă și îndelung așteptată meditație asupra dragostei și a forței pătrunzătoare a artei... Elocventă și convingătoare... " (Kirkus Reviews)
