Review

Every once in a while - if you are very lucky - you come upon a novel so marvelous and enchanting and rare that you wish everyone in the world would read it, as well. The Good Thief is just such a book - a beautifully composed work of literary magic. That masterpieces don't come along very often only makes it more wonderful to experience (Elizabeth Gilbert author of EAT, PRAY, LOVE)

A confident whirl of a read, with pathos and drama nicely juxtaposed (Guardian)

A sensitive tale, beautifully told (She Magazine)

It may be too quaint to imagine there are still families reading aloud together at night (so many Web sites, so little time), but if you're out there, consider Hannah Tinti's charming first novel. Set in the dark woods of 19th-century New England, The Good Thief follows a bright, one-handed orphan through enough harrowing scrapes and turns to satisfy your inner Dickens (Washington Post)

Tinti is lavish with her storytelling gifts, which are prodigious (New York Times Book Review)

[A] moody, twist and assured first novel.... Tinti secures her place as one of the sharpest, slyest young American novelists (Entertainment Weekly)

Much-trumpeted debut novel featuring Ren, a one-handed orphan in 19th-Century New England. When rugged stranger Benjamin Nab takes charge of the lad, claiming to be his brother, Ren is soon left wondering just where the truth lies (Mirror)

A wonderful historical adventure strongly influenced by Poe, Dickens, and Patricia Highsmith. An excellent debut novel (Harper's Bazaar, Australia)

'Every once in a while - if you are very lucky - you come upon a novel so marvelous and enchanting and rare that you wish everyone in the world would read it, as well. The Good Thief is just such a book - a beautifully composed work of literary magic. That masterpieces don't come along very often only makes it more wonderful to experience' (Elizabeth Gilbert (author of Eat, Pray, Love))

A beautiful novel, a dazzling debut (Sunday Telegraph, Sydney)

Book Description

Fingersmith meets Deadwood, The Crimson Petal meets Brokeback Mountain - filmic, juicy, dramatic historical fiction of the most delicious kind.
