The Secret History: by Donna Tartt | Conversation Starters
A Brief Look Inside:
The Secret History, Donna Tartt's first novel, tells the story of social class, murder, and guilt. Richard, an unhappy young man living in California, relocates to Vermont to study at Hampden College. He hopes to continue his Greek studies. However, the Classics course he wants to take is highly selective; only the most impressive students are able to find their way in. If he is going to enter the class, he must get the attention and win over the group's leader, Professor Julian Morrow. Eventually, Richard becomes friends with the members of the Classics course. What he discovers, however, is that the group is full of secrets, lies, and multiple murders. The Secret History by Donna Tartt became an instant bestseller upon its release in 1992 and continues to attract readers worldwide.
