Donna Tartt (English Donna Tartt ) American writer, essayist and literary critic. Donna Louise Tartt was born on December 23, 1963 in Greenwood, Mississippi, USA. At the age of five, Donna wrote her first poem, and her first publication was published in the Mississippi Literary Review when she was thirteen years old. In 1981, Tartt entered the University of Mississippi and became a member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma fraternity. One of Donna`s university writing teachers said of her, "My name is Willie Morris, and I believe you are a genius." Both Morris and other professors agreed that freshman Donna was significantly ahead of most university graduates in both talent and writing skills, and later recommended the young writer to transfer to Bennington, Vermont College with a specialization in "free arts." Tartt followed the advice and moved to Bennington, where she continued her studies and became friends with Bret Easton Ellis and Jill Eisenstadt. Tartt began writing her debut novel The Secret History in 1984 during her sophomore year in college. In 1989, Bret Easton Ellis recommended Donn to a well-known literary agent, and three years later, the publishing house paid four hundred and fifty thousand dollars for the debut of a still unknown writer, and the novel was published in an unprecedented circulation - 75,000 copies. In 2002, Donna`s second novel, The Little Friend, was published. Both novels became bestsellers. The Little Friend has been awarded the WH Smith prize, Britain`s largest retailer of newspapers, books and stationery. Donna`s third novel The Goldfinch (2011) was also a big hit and won a Pulitzer Prize. Donna Tartt has a whole army of fans all over the world, although she has released only three novels so far. Working in the classical tradition, Tartt masterfully maintains tension through subtle psychological intrigue and extraordinary density of the text, for which enthusiastic critics constantly compare the young writer to Stevenson. It should be noted that mystical elements are plot-forming for her novel The Secret History.  Science Fiction Laboratory . "The most interesting story here is about Donna Tartt herself. Cinderella the prodigy: first poems at age five, first publications at thirteen, then two novels, each of which took ten years, and each is a bestseller. The first is" Secret history "- turned out to be the loudest debut in American literature of the 90s. Millions of copies, translations into 11 foreign languages ​​- despite the fact that" The Secret History "is a real intellectual novel, only very conditionally forging a detective story. Critics deduced whole formulas for Tartt`s success , attributing it now to a successful combination of planets, or to the general lull in the book market of the 90s. Like, in a vacuum, the shot of "Secret History" thundered like a bomb. But the fact is that it was a bomb. "Secret History" Tartt began writing in college, where she also managed to study very well. The learning outcomes are noticeable both in Tartt`s quoting interviews, and in the novel. Parsing this text by strings is a separate pleasure: where is the Dosto Evsky, where Evelyn Waugh, where - what an ancient Greek tragedy.
