Donna Tartt is more than mildly fixated on things classical. As good a place to begin as any is the fact that she has a largish obsession, bordering on the cultic, with T.S. Eliot. The ringleader and chief malefactor in The Secret History, an eerily grave polymath called Henry Winter, comes from Eliot’s hometown, St. Louis, has the same first name as Old Tom’s brother, wears tiny, old-fashioned steel-rimmed glasses and “dark English suits and carries[s] and umbrella (a bizarre sight in Hampden) and … walk[s] stiffly through the throngs of hippies and beatniks and preppies and punks with the self-conscious formality of an old ballerina.”

Tartt’s answering machine message is the Man Himself, reading, solemnly, from “The Waste Land”: “I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring. / Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone, / Tell her I bring the horoscope myself: / One must be so careful these days.”

"I remember the meal we had with Freddie Lounds, myself, Abigail, and Hannibal, obviously. […]  But what I found odd about it was that, half way through shooting the scene, I happened to look a bit more closely at the plate, and there was a bird skull sitting on the side of the plate.  And I thought - Really?  Nobody’s figured out there’s something a little odd about this man, that he’s boiling up small animals for plate decoration?"
