My review of "The Goldfinch" appears in print and online in the January 25, 2014 edition of "The Clarion Ledger." F or this reader, a bsorbing Donna Tartt's newest novel i s a step away from the thrillers I write and typically enjoy. Authors who review the work of other authors are said to help all concerned. "The Goldfinch" is a opportunity to indulge in a rather lengthy, but beautifully written, work of literary fiction. http://www.clarionledger.com/article/20140126/FEAT/301260058/Book-review-Goldfinch-both-complex-dark ----- Darden North is the IPPY-award winning author of four novels and murder mysteries, most recently "Wiggle Room."
