"The Goldfinch" Wins Pulitzer Prize

the goldfinch

Earlier this week, the 2014 Pulitzer prize winners were announced, and taking home the prize for fiction is Donna Tartt, for her third novel The Goldfinch. The novel tells the story of Theo, a teenage boy who is sent to live with wealthy relatives following the death of his mother in a horrific accident. Alienated from his peers and struggling to come to terms with his new life, Theo finds comfort in a small painting of a goldfinch, which reminds him of his mother. His fixation on this painting draws him into the world of art.
