The million-copy bestseller, Hanya Yanagihara's A Little Life, by the author of To Paradise and The People in the Trees, is an immensely powerful and heartbreaking novel of brotherly love and the limits of human endurance. Wonderfully romantic and sometimes harrowing, A Little Life kept me reading late into the night, night after night. I think this is a great book if you have a fitness tracker, as increasingly I had to put this book down and go for a walk. Objectively, parts of this are a gruelling read, but such is the author's skill that the pages do seem to turn themselves as we race towards finding out the terrible secrets of Jude's dark trauma.It's a lengthy and emotionally intense work that has garnered significant critical acclaim for its deep character development and thought-provoking examination of the human condition.

As JB talked with his coworkers in the kitchen, Malcolm and Willem had walked through the apartment together (Where had Jude been that night?A Little Life asks serious questions about humanism and euthanasia and psychiatry and any number of the partis pris of modern western life. Its pages are soaked with grief, but it's also about the bottomless human capacity for love and endurance .

His early pieces had included The Mace, a tennis ball that he had de-fuzzed, sliced in half, and filled with sand before coating it in glue and rolling it around and around in a carpet of hair so that the bristles moved like seaweed underwater, and “The Kwotidien,” in which he covered various household items--a stapler; a spatula; a teacup--in pelts of hair. Yanagihara paints a raw and unflinching portrait of Jude's suffering, which includes physical and emotional abuse suffered in his youth. As ambition, addiction, and pride threaten to pull the group apart, they always find themselves bound by their love for Jude and the mysteries of his past.

Yet their greatest challenge, each comes to realize, 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.
