About this deal

An astonishing achievement: a novel of grand drama and sentiment, but it's a canvas Yanagihara has painted with delicate, subtle brushstrokes. Jude has problems walking – he’s vague in his description about how this happened – and once she plants the idea of Jude’s abuse, she makes you wonder what EXACTLY happened to him. Turning off the personalised advertising setting won’t stop you from seeing Etsy ads, but it may make the ads you see less relevant or more repetitive.

A remarkable tale of love, friendship and the difficulties of embracing life when everything conspires against your right to happiness. About ⅓ of the way in, I thought, somewhat heartlessly (I know, I know), “Imagine taking a drink every time Jude says ‘I’m sorry. You’re the friend of Malcolm Irvine, of Jean-Baptiste Marion, of Richard Goldfarb, of Andy Contractor, of Lucien Voigt, of Citizen van Straaten, of Rhodes Arrowsmith, of Elijah Kozma, of Phaedra de los Santos, of the Henry Youngs. The four men think about work and creativity and success and failure; they cook for each other, compete with each other and jostle for each other's affection.A Little Life is rich and troubling and challenging and, long as it is at over 700 pages, I didn’t want it to end.

Dua LipaThe million-copy bestseller, Hanya Yanagihara's A Little Life, by the author of To Paradise, is an immensely powerful and heartbreaking novel of brotherly love and the limits of human endurance. A Little Life is an immensely powerful and heartbreaking novel of brotherly love and the limits of human endurance.I think people are responding to it because in some way we all feel damaged, used, unloved – although not to the extent that Jude does.
