Editorial Reviews

Review

“Astonishing.” —The Atlantic

“Deeply moving. . . . A wrenching portrait of the enduring grace of friendship.” —NPR
 
“Elemental, irreducible.” —The New Yorker
 
“Hypnotic. . . . An intimate, operatic friendship between four men.” —The Economist
 
 “Capacious and consuming. . . . Immersive.” —The Boston Globe
 
“Beautiful.” —Los Angeles Times
 
“Exquisite. . . . It’s not hyperbole to call this novel a masterwork—if anything that word is simply just too little for it.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“Remarkable. . . . An epic study of trauma and friendship written with such intelligence and depth of perception that it will be one of the benchmarks against which all other novels that broach those subjects (and they are legion) will be measured. . . . A Little Life announces [Yanagihara] as a major American novelist.” —The Wall Street Journal

“Utterly gripping. Wonderfully romantic and sometimes harrowing, A Little Life kept me reading late into the night, night after night.” —Edmund White
 
“Spellbinding . . . . An exquisitely written, complex triumph.” —O, The Oprah Magazine
 
“Drawn in extraordinary detail by incantatory prose. . . . Affecting and transcendent.” —The Washington Post

“[A Little Life] lands with a real sense of occasion: the arrival of a major new voice in fiction. . . . Yanagihara’s achievement has less to do with size . . . than with the breadth and depth of its considerable power, which speaks not to the indomitability of the spirit, but to the fragility of the self.” —Vogue

“Exquisite. . . . The book shifts from a generational portrait to something darker and more tender: an examination of the depths of human cruelty, counterbalanced by the restorative powers of friendship.” —The New Yorker

“A book unlike any other. . . . A Little Life asks serious questions about humanism and euthanasia and psychiatry and any number of the partis pris of modern western life. . . . A devastating read that will leave your heart, like the Grinch’s, a few sizes larger.” —The Guardian

“Exceedingly good.” —Newsweek

A Little Life is unlike anything else out there. Over the top, beyond the pale and quite simply unforgettable.” —The Independent

“Piercing. . . . [Yanagihara is] an author with the talent to interrogate the basest and most beautiful extremes of human behaviour with sustained, bruising intensity.” —The Times Literary Supplement

“A brave novel. . . . Impressive and moving.” —Literary Review

“Enthralling and completely immersive. . . . Stunning.” —Daily News
