Content descriptions

Summary: The author of The Secret History and The Little Friend returns with a new novel about a 13-year-old boy in New York City, Theo Decker, who miraculously survives an accident that takes the life of his mother. Alone and abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by a friend's family and struggles to make sense of his new life. In the years that follow, bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don't know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by his longing for his mother, he becomes entranced by one of the few things that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the art underworld. As an adult he moves between the drawing rooms of the rich and the dusty labyrinth of an antiques store where he works. He is alienated and in love, and his talisman, the painting, places him at the center of a narrowing, ever more dangerous circle. This is a haunted odyssey through present-day America, and a drama of almost unbearable acuity and power. It is a story of loss and obsession, survival and self-invention, and the enormous power of art. -- Provided by publisher.
