Synopsis

The million-copy bestseller, Hanya Yanagihara’s A Little Life, by the author of To Paradise and The People in the Trees, is an immensely powerful and heart-breaking novel of brotherly love and the limits of human endurance.

Winner of Fiction of the Year at the British Book Awards, Shortlisted for the Booker Prize, Shortlisted for the Women’s Prize, 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cruel Brooklyn-born painter seeking entry to the art world; Malcolm, a frustrated architect at a prominent firm; and withdrawn, brilliant, enigmatic Jude, who serves as their centre of gravity.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
