Description - The Secret History


Donna Tartt, winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prizefor hermost recent novel, "The Goldfinch," established herself as a major talent with "The Secret History," which has become a contemporary classic. 
Under the influence of their charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries. But when they go beyond the boundaries of normal morality their lives are changed profoundly and forever, and they discover how hard it can be to truly live and how easy it is to kill.

 

Description - The Little Friend


The second novel by Donna Tartt, bestselling author of "The Goldfinch" (winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize), "The Little Friend" is a grandly ambitious and utterly riveting novel of childhood, innocence and evil.

The setting is Alexandria, Mississippi, where one Mother's Day a little boy named Robin Cleve Dufresnes was found hanging from a tree in his parents' yard. Twelve years later Robin's murder is still unsolved and his family remains devastated. So it is that Robin's sister Harriet--unnervingly bright, insufferably determined, and unduly influenced by the fiction of Kipling and Robert Louis Stevenson--sets out to unmask his killer. Aided only by her worshipful friend Hely, Harriet crosses her town's rigid lines of race and caste and burrows deep into her family's history of loss. Filled with hairpin turns of plot and "a bustling, ridiculous humanity worthy of Dickens" ("The New York Times Book Review"), "The Little Friend" is a work of myriad enchantments by a writer of prodigious talent.
