The Goldfinch Paperback - 2014

by Donna Tartt

About this book

Winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, Donna Tartt's novel The Goldfinch enjoyed a meteoric rise since its debut in October 2013. The Goldfinch is Tartt's third novel after the very successful The Secret History (1992) and The Little Friend (2002) and enjoyed an initial printing of 75,000 copies by publisher Little, Brown, and Company.

Frustratingly for fans of the author, it took Tartt almost 11 years to complete The Goldfinch, but it became one of the most anticipated books of 2013, and it quickly became a best seller. Interestingly, although most Pulitzer Prize winning novels only become best sellers after they win the illustrious award, The Goldfinch was the opposite�it enjoyed a great critical and audience reception long before it was nominated for the Pulitzer.

In a common pattern for Tartt, The Goldfinch is a long book, finishing at over 700 pages. The simple dust jacket design features the image of a painting of a goldfinch peeking through ripped paper. Later editions of the book will surely update the dust jacket to indicate its win of the Pulitzer Prize.

Tartt is a quiet and very private writer, so signed, first edition copies of The Goldfinch are rare and will only continue to skyrocket in value. Further, if Tartt continues to write and publish such excellent and well-received novels, the overall value of her entire repertoire of novels will rise as well. Since The Goldfinch is such a large and thus heavy book, collectors wishing to maintain the highest quality will want to be especially careful not to bend or place any undue pressure on the spine.

First Edition Identification

The first US edition was published by Little, Brown and Company, and states First Edition: October 2013 on the copyright page along with full number line 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1. Boards are white cloth with black lettering on front and spine. Dust jacket lacks any reviews.

The UK first edition states "First published in Great Britain in 2013 by Little, Brown" and lacks any reference to reprints. Boards are black with silver lettering on the spine. Dust jacket has no reviews. The back of the dust jacket has a passage from the book - the main character describing his first encounter with the Goldfinch oil painting.

The Goldfinch was first published in September 2013 as Het puttertje in Dutch by De Bezige Bij, Amsterdam. The U.S. and UK editions were released a month later.
