My review of "The Goldfinch" appears in print and online in the January 25, 2014 edition of "The Clarion Ledger." For this reader, absorbing Donna Tartt's newest novel is 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.
