ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
La storia di Theo Decker, sopravvissuto, appena tredicenne, all'attentato terroristico che in un istante manda in pezzi la sua vita. Solo a New York, senza parenti né un posto dove stare, viene accolto dalla ricca famiglia di un suo compagno di scuola. A disagio nella sua nuova casa di Park Avenue, isolato dagli amici e tormentato dalla nostalgia per la madre, l'unica cosa che riesce a consolarlo è un piccolo quadro dal fascino singolare. E da lì, il suo futuro diventa una rocambolesca giravolta tra salotti chic, amori e criminalità, guidato da una pulsione autodistruttiva, impossibile da controllare.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction 2014. Aged thirteen, 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. The Goldfinch is a haunted odyssey through present-day America and a drama of enthralling power. Combining unforgettably vivid characters and thrilling suspense, it is a beautiful, addictive triumph - a sweeping story of loss and obsession, of survival and self-invention, of the deepest mysteries of love, identity and fate.
