To Paradise is the first novel by Hanya Yanagihara since her decades-spanning saga of survival and suffering A Little Life won over the world and became a Booker Prize–shortlisted bestseller. Her follow-up is even more ambitious in scope, traversing some three centuries and differing versions of America, and exploring themes of love, loss and the elusive promise of utopia in a fictionalised New York. Hanya speaks with Anton Enus. If you enjoyed this episode, please rate and subscribe to our channel.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Tan poca vida de la escritora Hanya Yanagihara

Merodeando entre libros.

Para descubrir eso y más, aquí está Tan poca vida, una historia que recorre más de tres décadas de amistad en la vida de cuatro hombres que crecen juntos en Manhattan. Cuatro hombres que tienen que sobrevivir al fracaso y al éxito y que, a lo largo de los años, aprenden a sobreponerse a las crisis económicas, sociales y emocionales. Cuatro hombres que comparten una idea muy peculiar de la intimidad, una manera de estar juntos hecha de pocas palabras y muchos gestos. Cuatro hombres cuya relación la autora utiliza para realizar una minuciosa indagación de los límites de la naturaleza humana--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/judith-cabrera/message
