Hanya Yanagihara-A Little Life

 

I am amazed, inspired, terrified, overwhelmed by this book. It’s a frustrating roller coaster of words and ideas and even though I have moments of wanting to put it down and walk away every , I just can’t. It keeps sucking me back in. I am staggered by the flow of the story and the easy pace it develops. I’m completely in awe of this woman who managed to keep all of the threads together. It’s easy to see why Yanagihara has just been shortlisted for the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction and at 720 pages, I’m glad I get to spend April with this book.
