if you haven't read it, read it now. if you have, read it again, because it has probably been about 10 years and you have forgotten exactly why this book is a cult classic. set in a small liberal arts college in vermont, tartt brings back the term "greek tragedy" in a haunting story about 6 college kids and their obsession with the ancient culture. if you have trouble understanding why good people do bad things, richard, the narrator, will take you on a psychological journey that will make you question your own morality. tartt, who studied at bennington college with pal bret easton ellis, is not only a master storyteller, but so gifted with words, that you will read some sentences over and over in awe of their powerful imagery.
