WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE FOR FICTION Theo Decker, aged thirteen, is left alone in the world after surviving a catastrophe that kills his only close relative - his mother - and tears him away from everything he knows.

Another rich slice of gothic drama -- Books of the Year * Sunday Times * Combines narrative grandeur with dazzling detail -- Books of the Year * Guardian * Sublimely written, with elegant touches of the gothic -- Books of the Year * The Times * Really does grip from the first page... a noirish thriller and epic love story rolled into one -- Books of the Year * Daily Mail * Runs the gamut from thriller to meditation on loss, and runs it magnificently -- Books of the Year * Sunday Telegraph * A soaring masterpiece * Washington Post * The Goldfinch is a triumph... Donna Tartt has delivered an extraordinary work of fiction * Stephen King * Sumptuous, generous and entirely captivating -- Books of the Year * Independent * Dazzling. A glorious, Dickensian novel that pulls together all Tartt's remarkable storytelling talents into a rapturous, symphonic whole and reminds the reader of the immersive, stay-up-all-night pleasures of reading * New York Times * An astonishing achievement. If anyone has lost their love of storytelling, The Goldfinch will most certainly return it to them. The last few pages of the novel take all the serious, big, complicated ideas beneath the surface and hold them up to the light. Not for Tartt the kind of clever riffs which are too commonly found in contemporary fiction. Instead, when plot comes to an end, she leads us to a place just beyond it - a place of meaning * Guardian * The Goldfinch is a book about art in all its forms, and right from the start we remember why we enjoy Donna Tartt so much: the humming plot and elegant prose; the living, breathing characters; the perfectly captured settings.... Joy and sorrow exist in the same breath, and by the end The Goldfinch hangs in our stolen heart * Vanity Fair * Lavish and lush in dcor and span... The novel lets us see, and feel, the real bird beyond the brush, or rather, the grief, and addictive yearning, behind its cabinet of curiosities. For those who want to share the double vision, to slip attentively between luxurious illusion and overt craftiness, a deeper layer of pleasure awaits in The Goldfinch. In every sense, this is quite a piece of work -- Boyd Tonkin * Independent * In the epic range of its concerns with grief, loss, loneliness, fate, and the nature of good and evil, its rich cast of characters, and its broad social canvas, it bears comparison with Proust, Dickens, Dostoevsky and Nabokov. It is meticulously structured and paced, and reading it is an enthralling experience of total immersion in Tartt's vision and voice. A beautiful and important book -- Elaine Showalter * Prospect * A gripping page-turner and a challenging, beautifully written account of modern life. Moving but unsentimental, funny without being trite, all human life is here. It will doubtless be a contender for one of 2013's best novels -- James Kidd * Independent on Sunday * A modern epic and an old-fashioned pilgrimage, a nimble thrill-seek and heavyweight masterpiece. And if it doesn't gain Tartt entry to the mostly boys' club that is The Great American Novel, to drink with life-members John Steinbeck, Harper Lee, Saul Bellow, Philip Roth et al, then we should close down the joint and open up another for the Great Global Novel - for that is what this is -- Alex O'Connell * The Times * It is the extraordinary depth of detail and wholeness of her imagining that makes it such an impressive work... Utterly absorbing, a superb novel -- Victoria Moore * Daily Mail * Mysterious and mercurial, The Goldfinch finally reveals itself as a rare bird - a highbrow fable and a page-turner -- Anthony Quinn * Mail on Sunday * Without doubt a beguiling novel. It is smart - in both the British and American senses of that word - brilliantly readable, thrilling and touching -- Jane Shilling * New Statesman * Like a Dutch painting, every scene is described in glittering detail and framed with retrospective melancholy. A modern-day David Copperfield... The Goldfinch
