    Fås i hardback-udgave, 9788740038309 Et lille liv er en af den slags romaner, der fortæller en menneskehistorie, man aldrig glemmer. Da fire studiekammerater flytter til New York for at finde vej ind i voksenlivet uden en klink på lommen, drives de frem af deres venskab og ambitioner. Willem drømmer om scenen, den hårdhudede, skarpe JB om et liv med billedkunst, Malcolm frustreres i sine forsøg på at skabe en karriere i et stort arkitektfirma, og den talentfulde, fjerne Jude, som lige har fået sin advokatbestalling, er gruppens centrum. Årene går, og deres forhold farves af både succes og stolthed, men også af den grelleste form for misbrug og overgreb. Langsomt samler fortællingen sig om Jude, der på en gang er en af New Yorks mest succesrige advokater og et nedbrudt menneske. Han hjemsøges af den barndom, han har brugt hele sit liv på at flygte fra, og hvis traumer, han frygter, vil definere ham for altid. Med formfuldendt, nærmest overdådig prosa har Hanya Yanagihara skabt et mesterligt portræt af hjertesorg og et mørkt indblik i overgrebets væsen.

    Folket i træerne er Hanya Yanagiharas første roman, som hun skrev inden sin internationale kæmpesucces Et lille liv. Året er 1950, og en ung læge ved navn Norton Perina er ved at forberede sig til en ekspedition til en fjern ø i Mikronesien, Ivu’iyu, på jagt efter en sagnomspunden, forsvundet stamme. Sammen med antropologen Paul Tallent drager han af sted og lykkes med sin mission; han finder ikke bare stammen, men også en anden gruppe mennesker som bor i skoven og virker til at opnå meget høje levealdre. Perina mistænker at kilden til hvad der næsten ligner evigt liv er kødet fra en bestemt skildpaddeart, og han er ude af stand til at modstå den fristelse det er at slå en ihjel og smugle en smule af kødet med tilbage til USA. Han er i stand til videnskabeligt at bevise sin tese, hvilket gør ham berømt verden over, men han opdager snart at prisen for opdagelsen er høj og frygtelig. Folket i træerne er baseret på den virkelige historie om nobelpristager Dr. Daniel Carleton Gajdusek og er en tindrende mørk, modig fortælling om magt, magtmisbrug og menneskeligt begær i alle dets former.

    Året er 1893, og New York er en del af de Frie Stater, hvor man skal kunne elske hvem man vil. Men da en skrøbelig efterkommer af en fornem familie drages af en charmerende, fattig musiklærer, møder han modstand. På Manhattan i 1993, midt under AIDS-epidemien, bor en ung hawaiiansk mand sammen med sin ældre, rigere partner og er tvunget til at skjule sit barndomstraume. Og i 2093, i en totalitær verden plaget af sygdom, forsøger barnebarnet af en berømt forsker at løse mysteriet om sin mands forsvinden.Tre fortællinger samles i Til paradis i en medrivende symfoni, mens tilbagevendende temaer og motiver uddyber og beriger hinanden: Et rækkehus i Washington Square Park i Greenwich Village; pandemier og deres behandlinger; rigdom over for elendighed; længslen efter at finde et jordisk paradis, og den gradvise erkendelse af, at det ikke kan eksistere. Både romanens figurer og bogens Amerika forenes i et opgør med de egenskaber, der gør os til mennesker: Frygt, kærlighed, skam, nød og ensomhed.Til paradis er en fin de siècle-roman om det amerikanske eksperiment, en mesterligt orkestreret fortælling om vores behov for at beskytte dem, vi elsker, og den smerte vi føler, når vi ikke kan.

    #1 NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • From the award-winning, best-selling author of the classic A Little Life—a bold, brilliant novel spanning three centuries and three different versions of the American experiment, about lovers, family, loss and the elusive promise of utopia.A BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR: VOGUE • ESQUIRE • NPR • GOODREADSTo Paradise is a fin de siècle novel of marvelous literary effect, but above all it is a work of emotional genius. The great power of this remarkable novel is driven by Yanagihara’s understanding of the aching desire to protect those we love—partners, lovers, children, friends, family, and even our fellow citizens—and the pain that ensues when we cannot.In an alternate version of 1893 America, New York is part of the Free States, where people may live and love whomever they please (or so it seems). The fragile young scion of a distinguished family resists betrothal to a worthy suitor, drawn to a charming music teacher of no means. In a 1993 Manhattan besieged by the AIDS epidemic, a young Hawaiian man lives with his much older, wealthier partner, hiding his troubled childhood and the fate of his father. And in 2093, in a world riven by plagues and governed by totalitarian rule, a powerful scientist’s damaged granddaughter tries to navigate life without him—and solve the mystery of her husband’s disappearances. These three sections comprise an ingenious symphony, as recurring notes and themes deepen and enrich one another: A townhouse in Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village; illness, and treatments that come at a terrible cost; wealth and squalor; the weak and the strong; race; the definition of family, and of nationhood; the dangerous righteousness of the powerful, and of revolutionaries; the longing to find a place in an earthly paradise, and the gradual realization that it can’t exist. What unites not just the characters, but these Americas, are their reckonings with the qualities that make us human: Fear. Love. Shame. Need. Loneliness.

    Readers of exciting, challenging and visionary literary fictionincluding admirers of Norman Rush's Mating, Ann Patchett's State of Wonder, Barbara Kingsolver's The Poisonwood Bible, and Peter Matthiessen's At Play in the Fields of the Lordwill be drawn to this astonishingly gripping and accomplished first novel. A decade in the writing, this is an anthropological adventure story that combines the visceral allure of a thriller with a profound and tragic vision of what happens when cultures collide. It is a book that instantly catapults Hanya Yanagihara into the company of young novelists who really, really matter.In 1950, a young doctor called Norton Perina signs on with the anthropologist Paul Tallent for an expedition to the remote Micronesian island of Ivu'ivu in search of a rumored lost tribe. They succeed, finding not only that tribe but also a group of forest dwellers they dub "e;The Dreamers,"e; who turn out to be fantastically long-lived but progressively more senile. Perina suspects the source of their longevity is a hard-to-find turtle; unable to resist the possibility of eternal life, he kills one and smuggles some meat back to the States. He scientifically proves his thesis, earning worldwide fame and the Nobel Prize, but he soon discovers that its miraculous property comes at a terrible price. As things quickly spiral out of his control, his own demons take hold, with devastating personal consequences.
