Beauty is terror. Whatever we call beautiful, we quiver before it.
Happy 51st birthday, Donna Tartt! The novelist began writing her debut book, The Secret History, when she was a student at Bennington College—it was published to great acclaim when she was 28. Since then, Tartt has published a novel every decade or so. Her most recent, The Goldfinch, won the Pulitzer Prize in 2013.
All My Best,
