    The Goldfinch is a haunted odyssey through present-day America and a drama of enthralling force and acuity. It begins with a boy. Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don't know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by his unbearable longing for his mother, he clings to one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of art.

    Theo Decker er 13 år, da han på mirakuløs vis overlever en eksplosion på et kunstmuseum i New York, mens hans elskede mor omkommer. Ved ulykken kommer han i besiddelse af et værdifuldt kunstværk fra 1600-tallet - et fascinerende billede af en lille fugl, Stillidsen. Han bærer det eftertragtede maleri med sig igennem sin ungdom, og efterhånden trækkes han ind i kunstens kriminelle og dødsensfarlige underverden. "Stillidsen" er en gribende fortælling om en ung mands dannelse og en uforglemmelig odyssé gennem Amerika.
