The Goldfinch, by Donna Tartt: Exclusive extract, part one
There, he becomes infatuated with a red-headed girl who is accompanied by an elderly man. However, a bomb explodes in the museum, killing his mother and several other visitors. In the rubble, Theo encounters an old man, Welton "Welty" Blackwell, who gives him a ring and delivers an enigmatic message before dying.
Believing that Welty is pointing at The Goldfinch, Theo takes it during his panicked escape. Theo moves in with a school friend, Andy Barbour, and his wealthy family in their elegant Park Avenue apartment.
He carries out Welty's last wishes and returns the ring, becoming friends with James "Hobie" Hobart, Welty's partner. He also briefly encounters the red-haired girl, Pippa.
Theo's life is disrupted when his deadbeat dad , Larry, arrives with his new girlfriend, Xandra, and whisks him away to Las Vegas. Theo secretly takes the painting.
The two boys, who both have absentee parents, spend most of their afternoons drinking, smoking marijuana, and using other illegal drugs.
Theo's father, after gambling himself deep into debt, gets drunk and dies in a car crash. Theo decides to return to New York. He takes the package containing The Goldfinch with him.
With nowhere to stay in New York, he heads to Hobie's, who welcomes him and gives him a place to stay.

Early every morning while it was still black out, before the extra clerks came on duty and the lobby started filling up, I walked downstairs for the newspapers.
The hotel staff moved with hushed voices and quiet footsteps, eyes gliding across me coolly as if they didn't quite see me, the American man in 27 who never came down during the day; and I tried to reassure myself that the night manager dark suit, crew cut, horn-rimmed glasses would probably go to some lengths to avert trouble or avoid a fuss. The Herald Tribune had no news of my predicament but the story was all over the Dutch papers, dense blocks of foreign print which hung, tantalizingly, just beyond the reach of my comprehension.
Onopgeloste moord. I went upstairs and got back into bed fully clad, because the room was so cold and spread the papers out on the coverlet: photographs of police cars, crime scene tape, even the captions were impossible to decipher, and although they didn't appear to have my name, there was no way to know if they had a description of me or if they were withholding information from the public.

Insofar as it is immortal and it is I have a small, bright, immutable part in that immortality. I was still disillusioned by how much I did not enjoy The Secret History.
