A Rare Sighting of ‘The Goldfinch’


1363966032282-goldfinchCOVERDonna Tartt’s new book, a 771-page, much anticipated opus called The Goldfinch, came out yesterday and already has heaps of high praise (Stephen King called it “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”). Considering Tartt is a notoriously reclusive author, not keen on the whole book tour thing, her sole reading in Brooklyn this Tuesday at Congregation Beth Elohim is a special occasion indeed, and will no doubt be packed with fans who first fell in love with her after reading The Secret History. If you’d like to really dive into her latest book, you could also visit the new exhibition of paintings by Dutch masters at The Frick, including her titular “Goldfinch.”
