At long last, Donna Tartt's third novel is in bookstores. The Mississippi-born writer exploded on the scene in 1992 with the release of The Secret History, a book she authored while attending Bennington College. Often described as a murder mystery in reverse, the book was about a close-knit group of college friends. In follow-up to the international bestseller, Tartt wrote The Little Friend. Published a decade after the first, it centered around a young girl in the American South in the late 20th century. Flash-forward to 2013, and Tartt-isans have been given The Goldfinch to chew on. The book is about a boy named Theo, who, in the aftermath of his mother's death, steals a famous painting. This evening, in celebration of the Goldfinch's release, the publicity-shy Tartt reads from and discusses her new book with Maud Newton as part of the Brooklyn By the Book series.
