We are pleased to present an evening with American novelist Hanya Yanagihara October 5th, 8pm - 9.30pm, in the Vondelkerk (John Adams Institute). Her second novel A Little Life has established her as a major new voice in US fiction.

he novel, which is both a dislocating meditation on the trauma of child sexual abuse, and a moving tribute to the possibilities and limitations of adult male friendship and love, was widely greeted as a book of landmark honesty. According to the Atlantic, the novel is “the most ambitious chronicle of the social and emotional lives of gay men to have emerged for many years” – on publication in America. In July 2015, the book was selected as a finalist for the Man Booker Prize. Yanagihara was also selected as a finalist for the 2015 National Book Award in Fiction for A Little Life.

Read an excerpt from A Little Life or een voorpublicatie van Een klein leven.
