Defining Moments, Indelible Memoirs

A handshake with JFK in 1963 and an eccentric Hollywood aunt shape the respective lives of Ben Taylor (The Hue and Cry at Our House) and Michael Frank (The Mighty Franks). As their years unfurl through these distinct American lenses, the writers approach boundaries of time, family and memory, while reconciling childhood forces with the men they have become.

Here is an interesting comment on The Goldfinch, done by BBC.

Interesting article about the art and calling the red feathers depicted in the painting representative of the blood of Christ. To me, that is a bit far-fetched, but not knowing whether that is a custom in art history, I will consider it good thinking and writing. I now have a copy of Donna Tartt's 2 other books, The Little Friend and The Secret History. Readers seem to have rediscovered them and seem to like them.
