Now added to the reading list: "Congratulations are in order for Donna Tartt, whose 784-page book, The Goldfinch, a "beautifully written coming-of-age novel with exquisitely drawn characters," has just been awarded the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. Raise your hand if you've read it." - Jezebel
This is my favorite book I read so far in 2014. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. A young boy struggling with the sudden loss of his mother becomes entranced with a small painting that draws him into the mysterious underworld of the art industry. Winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. Selected by Amazon, The New York Times, The Economist, The Washington Post, Barnes & Noble, Kirkus Reviews and Booklist.
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt- for book club. A hard, hard, hard book to read, yet I devoured it in hopes of a happy ending. Nope. Not from my perspective.
The Goldfinch: A Novel (Pulitzer Prize for Fiction): Donna Tartt. Engaging story about the struggles of a young boy growing up in a world of dysfunction following a bomb blast in the Met where he loses his mother, meets an inspirational elder, first glances his life long muse and "steals" a painting. Sad and sobering and often "long' but a good read just the same.
Spring Reading List | Goldfinch (Donna Tartt): This book is over 700 pages! Theo Decker loses his mother in an accident and is taken in by a wealthy family. This book follow Theo as he mourns his mother and becomes in possession of a Dutch masterpiece.

This book cover has illustrations of many silhouettes of heads looking, all facing left, coloured and female except for one in the bottom left corner. This head is male, white and facing right. This creates a very clear distiction between this character and the females suggesting that there is an alienation or individuality that this character feels towards the opposite gender.

Necessary Errors, Caleb Crain Crain is the rare debut novelist who writes with the sort of confidence we’d expect from an author who has already penned books upon books. And, in fact, Crain is no novice; he has been writing about, studying, and translating literature for years now. That’s probably why Crain’s novel, following the life of Jacob Putnam, a gay man in post-Velvet Revolution Prague feels more like a fourth or fifth novel.

Nabokov’s most famous work is first and foremost a novel of obsession, of love-madness taken to the most devastating extreme. Humbert Humbert is afflicted by something even he can’t understand, a desperate, gleaming urge that makes him loathe himself as much as he loves his prey. It’s terrifying, when you think about it, but it makes for some damn beautiful pros

Disgrace is a South African novel by J. M. Coetzee, published in 1999. It won the Booker Prize. The author was also awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature four years after its publication. "A novel set in post-apartheid South Africa. It takes its inspiration from South Africa's contemporary social and political conflict, and offers a bleak look at the country.
Bought this one from a Madison used bookstore. About post-apartheid South Africa. High praise, but I found it only OK.
