Donna Tartt Novel Not Coming This Year

By Jason Boog Comment

Donna Tartt fans will have to wait for her next novel.

Little, Brown acquired her untitled third book nearly four years ago, scheduling a 2012 release date. We confirmed that the book won’t be coming this year, but a new publication date has not been set. Tartt has earned a dedicated audience with two novels, The Secret History and The Little Friend.

Here’s more from the original release: “The new novel, as yet untitled, is a story of loss and obsession about a young man, guilt-stricken and damaged after the death of his mother, and the growing power that a stolen piece of art exercises over him, drawing him into an underworld of theft and corruption where nothing is as it seems.” (Image via Timothy Greenfield-Sanders)
