«The Goldfinch» is a captivating novel by American author Donna Tartt that explores themes of art, loss, trauma, and human resilience.
The plot revolves around Theodore Decker, a 13-year-old boy who experiences a horrific terrorist attack at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This event becomes a turning point in Theo's life, as he loses his mother and becomes obsessed with a painting called «The Goldfinch» by Carel Fabritius, which is stolen by one of the terrorists.
