  • "WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE "The Goldfinch is a rarity that comes along perhaps half a dozen times per decade, a smartly written literary novel that connects with the heart as well as the mind...Donna Tartt has delivered an extraordinary work of fiction."--Stephen King, The New York Times Book Review Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother.

  • ""Al empezar El jilguero, entramos en una habitación de hotel en Amsterdam. Theo Decker lleva más de una semana encerrado entre estas cuatro paredes, fumando sin parar, bebiendo vodka y masticando miedo. Es un hombre joven, pero su historia es larga y ni él sabe bien por qué ha llegado hasta aquí. ¿Cómo empezó todo? Con una explosión en el Metropolitan Museum de Nueva York hace unos diez años y la imagen de un jilguero de plumas doradas, un cuadro espléndido del siglo xvii que desapareció entre el polvo y los cascotes. Quien se lo llevó fue el mismo Theo, un chiquillo entonces, que de pronto se quedó huérfano de madre y se dedicó a malgastar su vida, mientras el recuerdo de una niña pelirroja llenaba sus noches y un bulto sospechoso iba pasando de mano en mano hasta llegar a Holanda."--P. [4] of cover."
