Four graduates move from their small Massachusetts college to New York to make their way in life, but soon find themselves broken and adrift and only bouyed by their friendship and ambition.
Willem is an aspiring actor; JB is a quick-witted and sometunes cruel artist looking to make his way in the industry; Malcolm is a frustrated architect; and the troubled but enigmatic litigator Jude is at the centre of their friendship.
Jude's life is increasingly broken and fears he'll never be able to overcome his unspeakable childhood, but can his friends help him through it all?
Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2015 A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara is an immensely powerful and heartbreaking novel of brotherly love and the limits of human endurance. 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cruel Brooklyn-born painter seeking entry to the art world; Malcolm, a frustrated architect at a prominent firm; and withdrawn, brilliant, enigmatic Jude, who serves as their centre of gravity.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 realise, 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.

The stunning debut novel, from the author of A Little Life. It is 1950 when Norton Perina, a young doctor, embarks on an expedition to a remote Micronesian island in search of a rumoured lost tribe. There he encounters a strange group of forest dwellers who appear to have attained a form of immortality that preserves the body but not the mind. Perina uncovers their secret and returns with it to America, where he soon finds great success. But his discovery has come at a terrible cost, not only for the islanders, but for Perina himself. Hanya Yanagihara's The People in the Trees marks the debut of a remarkable new voice in American fiction.
