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)
