Hanya Yanagihara is the author of the internationally bestselling A Little Life. She lives in New York City.
After the painfully affecting [A Little Life] To Paradise gives us three stories far apart in space and time but each unique in their power to summon the joy and complexity of love, the pain of loss. I'm not sure I've ever missed the world of a book as much as I miss To Paradise now I've left it. * Observer * To Paradise is a transcendent, visionary novel of stunning scope and depth. A novel so layered, so rich, so relevant, so full of the joys and terrors - the pure mystery - of human life, is not only rare, it's revolutionary. -- Michael Cunningham, author of <i>The Hours</i> Hanya Yanagihara's To Paradise is as good as War and Peace -- Edmund White, author of <i>A Boy's Own Story </i> One of the most anticipated books of 2022 - if not the decade . . . Prepare to weep in public and be utterly transformed. * Stylist * To Paradise becomes unputdownable . . . Amidst the worst travails and political pressures, the primacy of human bonds is irreducible, a truth that lies at the heart of this frightening and very beautiful novel.' * Literary Review * A future classic . . . For those captivated by Yanagihara's A Little Life, her next is equally gripping . . . Ultimately, it asks the question: is love really all we need? * Telegraph * A bravura achievement . . . Behind this impressive, significant novel stands the question: what is a life, if it is not lived in freedom? * Guardian * A very unusual sensibility and a burning subject matter have come together here . . . Highly affecting. Read it and hope not to revisit it in your dreams. * Sunday Times *
