Hanya Yanagihara’s novel A Little Life has won the Kirkus Prize, and garnered coveted positions as a National Book Award Finalist and a 2015 Man Booker Prize Short-List for Fiction. A Little Life profiles the lives of four college friends living in New York as young adults and how friends can help remake a life that has been destroyed.

By tackling the issues of depression, sexual abuse, and self-harm, Yanagihara challenges traditional ideas of friendship, romantic relationships, and what it really means to love another human being.
