Description
(Winner of the 2015 Kirkus Prize and a finalist for the Man Booker Prize and the National Book Award) Appearing on notable and best book lists in the New York Times, Washington Post, NPR, and London's Guardian and Economist, Hanya Yanagihara's stunning second novel follows four college classmates as they move to New York City. While their relationships—tinged by addiction, success, and pride—change over the decades, the men are held together by their devotion to their brilliant, enigmatic friend Jude, who has been scarred by an unspeakable childhood trauma.

"A book unlike any other.... A Little Life asks serious questions about humanism and euthanasia and psychiatry and any number of the partis pris of modern western life.... A devastating read that will leave your heart, like the Grinch's, a few sizes larger."—Guardian (London)

"Exquisite.... The book shifts from a generational portrait to something darker and more tender: an examination of the depths of human cruelty, counterbalanced by the restorative powers of friendship."—The New Yorker

"[The novel] lands with a real sense of occasion: the arrival of a major new voice in fiction.... Yanagihara's achievement has less to do with size ... than with the breadth and depth of its considerable power, which speaks not to the indomitability of the spirit, but to the fragility of the self."—Vogue

"It's not hyperbole to call this novel a masterwork—if anything that word is simply just too little for it."—SFChronicle
