New Donna Tartt book

A new Donna Tartt book, The Little Friend, is finally being published (via G). I’m worried. Her first (and so far only) book, The Secret History, is the best book ever. I thought that when I read it, and my feelings have not changed on re-reads; its erudite and classical prose still draws me in in a way that Brideshead Revisited singularly failed to do. So a new book by her should be a landmark event. What worries me is that I can’t see how it would be anything but a letdown… ——-
