A little life

by Hanya Yanagihara | 10 March 2017
Paperback
The million copy bestseller, Hanya Yanagihara's A little Life is an immensely powerful and heartbreaking novel of brotherly love and the limits of human endurance. Shortlisted for the Booker Prize Shortlisted for the Baileys Prize for Women's Fiction Winner of Fiction Book of the Year at the British Book Awards Finalist for the US National Book Award For Fiction When four graduates from a small Massachusetts college move to New York to make their way, they're broke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition. There is kind, handsome Willem, an aspiring actor; JB, a quick-witted, sometimes cruel Brooklyn-born painter seeking entry to the art world; Malcolm, a frustrated architect at a prominent firm; and withdrawn, brilliant, enigmatic Jude, who serves as their centre of gravity. Over the decades, their relationships deepen and darken, tinged by addiction, success, and pride. Yet their greatest challenge, each comes to realize, is Jude himself, by midlife a terrifyingly talented litigator yet an increasingly broken man, his mind and body scarred by an unspeakable childhood, and haunted by what he fears is a degree of trauma that he'll not only be unable to overcome - but that will define his life forever. 'Yanagihara takes you so deeply into the lives and minds of these characters that you struggle to leave them behind.' - The Times 'A Little Life makes for near-hypnotically compelling reading, a vivid, hyperreal portrait of human existence that demands intense emotional investment' - Independent
