Winner of the 2014 Fiction Pulitzer PrizeAged thirteen, Theo Decker, son of a devoted mother and reckless, largely to an absent father, survives an accident that, otherwise, the tears of his life outside.Alone and without a rudder in New York, he is taken care of by the family of a rich friend.He is tormented by an unbearable desire for his mother, and for years, has been attached to the thing that most of them remind him of: a small, strangely captivating painting that ultimately attracts him to the criminal world.As he grows up, Theo learns to slip between the living rooms of the wealth and dust of the antiques shop where he works.He is alienated and love – and from his talisman, painting, puts him at the centre of a shrinking, increasingly dangerous circle.The Goldfinch is a haunted odyssey through present-day America and to the drama of the exciting power of power.Combining unforgettable, lively characters and exciting suspense, it is a beautiful, addictive triumph – a story of sweeping away loss and obsession, survival and self-invention, deep into the mysteries of love, identity and destiny.
