A Little Life (Hardback)

Hanya Yanagihara


Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2015, Hanya Yanagihara's A Little Life is an extraordinary novel all about heartbreak and the tyranny of experience and memory.

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?

A Little Life -

I believe that this is one of the best novels that I have read. It is excruciatingly harrowing in places yet at the same time envelopes you in the narrative. It is poignant, tender, showing strength and perseverance in very dark days and the resilience and friendship that endures
