A National Book Award finalist and short-listed for the Man Booker Prize, Hanya Yanagihara’s novel A Little Life is a tragic and transcendent psalm to brotherly love and an unsettling meditation on sexual abuse, suffering, and the difficulties of recovery—“an examination of the depths of human cruelty, counterbalanced by the restorative powers of friendship” (The New Yorker). Yanagihara’s previous book, The People in the Trees, was shortlisted for the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize for Debut Fiction. She is Deputy Editor at T Magazine, The New York Times Style Magazine
