A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
One of the most beautiful, heartbreaking, life-affirming novel I have had the pleasure to read.
Following four young men from college through to middle age in New York City, this book delves into the depths of friendship, love, and the lifelong effects of childhood trauma on both its recipients and the lives of everyone around them.
Told plainly and elegantly, this book deals with some tough issues with a gentle hand and grapples with some of our deepest darkest thoughts about ourselves and those we love.
Don't let the heavy nature put you off, if you are in the mood to have your life changed and heart challenged this book will pick you up and take you on a journey that will stay with you forever.
