en Limba Engleză Paperback – 27 May 1993
FROM THE PULITZER PRIZE-WINNING AUTHOR OF THE GOLDFINCH
Truly deserving of the accolade Modern Classic, Donna Tartt's bestseller The Secret History is a remarkable achievement ­­- both compelling and elegant, dramatic and playful.
­­­­­­­______________________________________
'What we did was terrible, but still I don't think any of us were bad, exactly; chalk it up to weakness on my part, hubris on Henry's, too much Greek prose composition - whatever you like.'
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 morality, their lives are changed profoundly and for ever.
The Secret History is a story of two parts; the chain of events that led to the death of a classmate - and what happened next.

Recenzii

The Secret History succeeds magnificently ... A remarkably powerful novel [and] a ferociously well-paced entertainment ... Forceful, cerebral, and impeccably controlled
So irresistible and seductive it's almost a guilty pleasure
A huge, mesmerizing, galloping read
Donna Tartt is an amazingly good writer. She's dense, she's allusive. She's a gorgeous storyteller
Takes my breath away
Brilliant and compulsive
A haunting, compelling, and brilliant piece of fiction ... Packed with literary allusion and told with a sophistication and texture that owes much more to the nineteenth century than to the twentieth
