A Little Life follows four college classmatesbroke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambitionas 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 Yanagiharas stunning novel is about the families we are born into, and those that we make for ourselves.

About the Author

Hanya Yanagihara

Hanya Yanagihara is an American novelist, editor and travel writer. She grew up in Hawaii.

Following her graduation from Smith College in 1995, Yanagihara moved to New York and worked for several years as a publicist. Her first novel, The People in the Trees, based on the real-life case of the virologist Daniel Carleton Gajdusek, was praised as one of the best novels of 2013.

Yanagihara's A Little Life was published in March 2015, receiving predominantly favorable reviews. The book was shortlisted for the 2015 Man Booker Prize for fiction, and won the 2015 Kirkus prize for fiction. Yanagihara was also selected as a finalist for the 2015 National Book Award.

A Little Life defied expectations by its editor, Yanagihara's agent, and the author herself that it would not sell well. In addition to being critically acclaimed, it is beloved by readers themselves.
