Descriere

A novel of extraordinary intelligence and heart, a masterful depiction of heartbreak, and a dark and haunting examination of the tyranny of experience and memory. 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cruel Brooklyn-born painter seeking entry to the art world; Malcolm, a frustrated architect at a prominent firm; and withdrawn, brilliant, enigmatic Jude, who serves as their centre of gravity.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.

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 anynumber 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

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
