About this deal

Boast[s] a scale and immersive power to rival the recent epics of Donna Tartt and Elizabeth Gilbert . Yanagihara takes you so deeply into the lives and minds of these characters that you struggle to leave them behind. The much-anticipated play also stars Luke Thompson ( Bridgerton, Hamlet), Omari Douglas ( It’s A Sin, Constellations), Zach Wyatt ( The Witcher, I and You), Elliot Cowan ( The Crown, 2:22 A Ghost Story), Zubin Varla ( Tammy Faye, Equus), Nathalie Armin ( Force Majeure, The Doctor), and Emilio Doorgasingh ( Best of Enemies, The Kite Runner).

This English-language version opened in London's West End in 2023, directed by Ivo van Hove and with a cast led by James Norton as Jude. Malcolm was the only one of the four of them who lived at home, and as JB liked to say, if he had Malcolm’s home, he would live at home too. Yet their greatest challenge, each comes to realize, is Jude himself, by midlife a terrifyingly talented litigator yet an increasingly broken man, his mind and body scarred by an unspeakable childhood, and haunted by what he fears is a degree of trauma that he'll not only be unable to overcome - but that will define his life forever. Four men who meet as college roommates move to New York and spend the next three decades gaining renown in their professions—as an architect, painter, actor and lawyer—and struggling with demons in their intertwined personal lives.

The hair project had proved difficult in other ways as well; another evening, when the three of them had somehow been once again conned into going to Little Italy and combing out more hair, Malcolm had commented that the hair stank. Book A Little Life Tickets at the Harold Pinter Theatre Official Box Office James Norton (Happy Valley, Grantchester) stars in the theatrical event of 2023 as visionary director Ivo van Hove (Network, A View from the Bridge) stages the English language premiere of A LITTLE LIFE, his acclaimed production of the million-copy bestseller by Hanya Yanagihara (To Paradise, Booker Prize Shortlist for A Little Life). The book shifts from a generational portrait to something darker and more tender: an examination of the depths of human cruelty, counterbalanced by the restorative powers of friendship. Despite this, the novel's powerful storytelling and beautifully crafted characters have made it a standout work in contemporary literature, earning it a place on bestseller lists and numerous literary award nominations including being a finalist for the 2015 National Book Award. I can only think the sun and bushfire smoke must have affected my brain, because it must have pushed my luggage allowance close to the limit.

The bestselling LGBTQ+ graphic novel about life, love, and everything that happens in between: this is the fifth volume of the Heartstopper series. Some of the data that are collected include the number of visitors, their source, and the pages they visit anonymously. JB bases his entire artistic career on painting portraits of his friends, while Malcolm takes care of them by designing their apartments and houses. Jude’s background is so painful as to be unbearable but the book is engrossing and involving and, like his friends, you want to know because you care about him, or maybe just because we always want to know. This room had been so narrow that Malcolm and Jude, lying in the bottom bunks, could reach out and grab each other’s hands.A Little Life is rich and troubling and challenging and, long as it is at over 700 pages, I didn’t want it to end. 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.

As ambition, addiction, and pride threaten to pull the group apart, they always find themselves bound by their love for Jude and the mysteries of his past.

An astonishing achievement: a novel of grand drama and sentiment, but it's a canvas Yanagihara has painted with delicate, subtle brushstrokes.

Yet their greatest challenge, each comes to realize, is Jude himself, by midlife a terrifyingly talented litigator yet an increasingly broken man, his mind and body scarred by an unspeakable childhood, and haunted by what he fears is a degree of trauma that he’ll not only be unable to overcome – but that will define his life forever. A remarkable tale of love, friendship and the difficulties of embracing life when everything conspires against your right to happiness. JB worked as a receptionist at a small but influential magazine based in SoHo that covered the downtown art scene. There is kind, handsome Willem, an aspiring actor; JB, a quick-witted, sometimes cruel Brooklyn-born painter seeking entry to the art world; Malcolm, a frustrated architect at a prominent firm; and withdrawn, brilliant, enigmatic Jude, who serves as their centre of gravity. And over and over and over the doctor, Andy: he fails every duty of care, everything that physicians stand for, believe in, dedicate their lives to—he’s there only to enable.

Two of them are straight, one is bisexual, and Jude, whose youth was unspeakably traumatic in a way that's revealed slowly over the course of the book, is gay. A Little Life is an absolutely heartbreaking story that will find itself being shared for years to come.

I think people are responding to it because in some way we all feel damaged, used, unloved – although not to the extent that Jude does.
