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.

Because he knew he wasn’t

This book is incredible for many reasons. Instead of imposing these my reasons on you, I will leave you to develop your own. I will say only this: the people (yes, people, not characters) in this book feel as real in this life as the people who are physically real in this life, my life, the one that inhabits the space that you and I share together on the Earth, and the emotions they’ve brought me to feel and the lessons they’ve brought me to learn will, I think, stay with me for as long as I can imagine.

You must read this book, in its entirety: you must read and then inhabit this life, so that it might inhabit you.

I will only say, as a disclaimer, that while this book offers sometimes immense hope, its reputation as a tragedy also holds true, and if you are insecure in your attachment to life, this book could either present a danger or a salvation, so read carefully, and know that you can stop reading at any time and leave the lives as they are on that page.

Thinking of you, with love,

A.

A mixed bag, as is life..

At times a page turner, other times slow and uneventful. I have never been so surrounded by a world as I was while reading this book. These characters are a part of me and feel like people I used to know.
