Week of April 6, 2015

Releases for the week of April 6th include Donna Tartt's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel THE GOLDFINCH, an old-fashioned story of loss and obsession, survival and self-invention, and the ruthless machinations of fate; DAVID AND GOLIATH, in which Malcolm Gladwell challenges how we think about obstacles and disadvantages, offering a new interpretation of what it means to endure various apparent setbacks; THE KING'S CURSE by Philippa Gregory, the story of lady-in-waiting Margaret Pole and her unique view of King Henry VIII’s stratospheric rise to power in Tudor England; and EVERYBODY'S GOT SOMETHING, Robin Roberts' memoir in which she recounts the incredible journey that's been her life so far, and the lessons she's learned along the way.

Donna Tartt, author of The Goldfinch

An explosion at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art kills Audrey Decker while she and her 13-year-old son, Theo, pay an afternoon visit. Theo survives, but before he stumbles to safety, a wounded elderly man encourages him to steal the Museum’s 1654 Carel Fabritius painting of a goldfinch and to deliver a gold ring to the Hobart and Blackwell antiques shop. Thus begins an 800-page adventure involving Vegas gamblers, underworld criminals, and Park Avenue privilege.
