Synopsis

A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara is an immensely powerful and heartbreaking novel of brotherly love and the limits of human endurance. When four graduates from a small Massachusetts college move to New York to make their way, they're broke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition. There is kind, handsome Willem, an aspiring actor; JB, a quick-witted, sometimes cruel Brooklyn-born painter seeking entry to the art world; Malcolm, a frustrated architect at a prominent firm; and withdrawn, brilliant, enigmatic Jude, who serves as their centre of gravity. Over the decades, their relationships deepen and darken, tinged by addiction, success, and pride. 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.

Staff Choice

Four men meet in college; serious Malcolm, excitable JB, generous Willem and the inscrutable Jude. Their relationships will last through graduate school and the decades beyond, through romance, addiction and trauma. But it is to Jude whom we return time and again, a man whose childhood had nothing childlike in it, who has suffered unspeakably and must fight just to make it through each day as his psychological and physical scars vie for prominence. A book that doesn't look for resolution or redemption-instead it considers the details that make up a life and the endurance sometimes required just to live in it.
