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.

Review: An Amazon Best Book of the Month, October 2013: It's hard to articulate just how much--and why--The Goldfinch held such power for me as a reader.  Always a sucker for a good boy-and-his-mom story, I probably was taken in at first by the cruelly beautiful passages in which 13-year-old Theo Decker tells of the accident that killed his beloved mother and set his fate. But even when the scene shifts--first Theo goes to live with his schoolmate’s picture-perfect (except it isn’t) family on Park Avenue, then to Las Vegas with his father and his trashy wife, then back to a New York antiques shop--I remained mesmerized. Along with Boris, Theo’s Ukrainian high school sidekick, and Hobie, one of the most wonderfully eccentric characters in modern literature, Theo--strange, grieving, effete, alcoholic and often not close to honorable Theo--had taken root in my heart.  Still, The Goldfinch is more than a 700-plus page turner about a tragic loss: it’s also a globe-spanning mystery about a painting that has gone missing, an examination of friendship, and a rumination on the nature of art and appearances. Most of all, it is a sometimes operatic, often unnerving and always moving chronicle of a certain kind of life. “Things would have turned out better if she had lived,” Theo said of his mother, fourteen years after she died. An understatement if ever there was one, but one that makes the selfish reader cry out: Oh, but then we wouldn’t have had this brilliant book! --Sara Nelson
