Anmeldelser

«Capacious and consuming . . . Boasts a scale and immersive power to rival the recent epics of Donna Tartt and Elizabeth Gilbert.»

Boston Globe

«Utterly compelling . . . quite an extraordinary novel. It is impossible to put down . . . And it is almost impossible to forget.»

Daily Express

«A darkly beautiful tale of love and friendship... I've read a lot of emotionally taxing books in my time, but A Little Life . . . is the only one I've read as an adult that's left me sobbing.»

Los Angeles Times

«Astonishing . . . tender, torturous and achingly alive to the undeniable pain that can scar a life.»

Psychologies

«It's Entourage directed by Bergman; it's the great 90s novel a quarter of a century too late; it's a devastating read that will leave your heart, like the Grinch's, a few sizes larger.»

Alex Preston, Observer

«Here is 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.»

Wall Street Journal

«It's not hyperbole to call this novel a masterwork - if anything that word is simply just too little for it»

San Francisco Chronicle

«A singularly profound and moving work . . . It's not often that you read a book of this length and find yourself thinking "I wish it was longer" but Yanagihara takes you so deeply into the lives and minds of these characters that you struggle to leave them behind.»

The Times

«A Little Life makes for near-hypnotically compelling reading, a vivid, hyperreal portrait of human existence that demands intense emotional investment . . . An astonishing achievement: a novel of grand drama and sentiment, but it's a canvas Yanagihara has painted with delicate, subtle brushstrokes.»

Independent

«A Little Life feels elemental, irreducible-and, dark and disturbing though it is, there is beauty in it»

New Yorker
