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.

Editorial Reviews

"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

"Elemental, irreducible."

– The New Yorker

"Drawn in extraordinary details by incantatory prose. . . .Affecting and transcendent."

– The Washington Post
