A Little Life follows four college classmates-broke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition-as they move to New York in search of fame and fortune. While their relationships, which are tinged by addiction, success, and pride, deepen over the decades, the men are held together by their devotion to the brilliant, enigmatic Jude, a man scarred by an unspeakable childhood trauma. A hymn to brotherly bonds and a masterful depiction of love in the twenty-first century, Hanya Yanagihara's stunning novel is about the families we are born into, and those that we make for ourselves.
Rezension
"Astonishing." -The Atlantic
"Deeply moving. . . . A wrenching portrait of the enduring grace of friendship." -NPR
"Elemental, irreducible." -The New Yorker
"Hypnotic. . . . An intimate, operatic friendship between four men." -The Economist
"Capacious and consuming. . . . Immersive." -The Boston Globe
"Beautiful." -Los Angeles Times
"Exquisite. . . . It's not hyperbole to call this novel a masterwork-if anything that word is simply just too little for it." -San Francisco Chronicle
"Remarkable. . . . An epic study of trauma and friendship written with such intelligence and depth of perception that it will be one of the benchmarks against which all other novels that broach those subjects (and they are legion) will be measured. . . . A Little Life announces [Yanagihara] as a major American novelist." -The Wall Street Journal
"Utterly gripping. Wonderfully romantic and sometimes harrowing, A Little Life kept me reading late into the night, night after night." -Edmund White
"Spellbinding . . . . An exquisitely written, complex triumph." -O, The Oprah Magazine
"Drawn in extraordinary detail by incantatory prose. . . . Affecting and transcendent." -The Washington Post
"[A Little Life] 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
"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
"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." -The Guardian
"Exceedingly good." -Newsweek
"A Little Life is unlike anything else out there. Over the top, beyond the pale and quite simply unforgettable." -The Independent
"Piercing. . . . [Yanagihara is] an author with the talent to interrogate the basest and most beautiful extremes of human behaviour with sustained, bruising intensity." -The Times Literary Supplement
"A brave novel. . . . Impressive and moving." -Literary Review
"Enthralling and completely immersive. . . . Stunning." -Daily News
"An extraordinary book. . . . The truths it tells are wrenching, permanent." -Evening Standard
"A tragic love story. . . . A transformative experience, not soon forgotten." -Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Arresting. . . . An extraordinary work of fiction by a writer of tremendous insight. . . . Yanagihara has a keen, incisive eye." -Irish Times
"Epic in scope, riveting on every page." -Bookforum
"The most ambitious chronicle of the social and emotional lives of gay men to have emerged for many years." -The Atlantic
"A miracle. . . . Yanagihara's most impressive trick is the way she glides from scenes filled with . . . terrifying hyenas to moments of epiphany." -Newsday
"Yanagihara achieves great psychological realism. . . . [A Little Life] seems to levitate out of history, edging towards the mythic or incredible." -The Spectator
"An American tragedy for our time, a haunting plea for redemption." -Toronto Star
"Devastating. . . . [A Little Life] has so much richness in it-great big passages of beautiful prose, unforgettable characters, and shrewd insights into art and ambition and friendship and forgiveness." -Entertainment Weekly
"A touching, eternal, unconventional love story. . . . A hymn to serious, lifelong friendship" -The Financial Times
