Staff Reviews


This is a finely-wrought Dickensian bildungsroman that follows the life of Theodore Decker and his tangled link to a seventeenth-century painting. Humor, peculiarity, terror, aching existential dread-- Tartt elicits it all in winding, imagistic prose. (Her writing almost tangibly glows-- the first time I read this, I thought, for the first several pages, that it must be a fantasy novel because of the pure magic with which she world-builds.) Tartt has a striking way of combining action-laced plot with subtle and poignant meditations on art, family, and loss. The one & only book that has my whole heart and will have it always.
