Product Description:

The first novel by Donna Tartt, author of  the National Bestseller The Goldfinch, The Secret History is a contemporary classic.

Under the influence of their charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries. But when they go beyond the boundaries of normal morality their lives are changed profoundly and forever, and they discover how hard it can be to truly live and how easy it is to kill.

From the Publisher:

I had heard about this book for years, pretty much everyone I knew told me to read it--to the point that I started to actively resist the idea. So when I had eye-laser surgery, I took home a copy of the audio for my recovery, and immediately regretted that I had put off reading it for so long. Once fully recovered, I got the paperback and read it for the bits that I might have missed. Even better the second time!A. Scheibe, editorial.
