Product Description

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction 2014 Aged thirteen Theo Decker son of a devoted mother and a reckless largely absent father survives an accident that otherwise tears his life apart. Alone and rudderless in New York he is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. He is tormented by an unbearable longing for his mother and down the years clings to the thing that most reminds him of her: a small strangely captivating painting that ultimately draws him into the criminal underworld. As he grows up Theo learns to glide between the drawing rooms of the rich and the dusty antiques store where he works. He is alienated and in love – and his talisman the painting places him at the centre of a narrowing ever more dangerous circle. The Goldfinch is a haunted odyssey through present-day America and a drama of enthralling power. Combining unforgettably vivid characters and thrilling suspense it is a beautiful addictive triumph – a sweeping story of loss and obsession of survival and self-invention of the deepest mysteries of love identity and fate.
