A Little Life

I’m mid way through the bestseller A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara and I can feel my heart bursting with the excess of pain and disillusionment felt by Jude, the lawyer with the ravaged body and broken spirit.  The relationships between the four friends is deep and strong, yet unsettling as its tinged with addiction, success and self inflicted pain. 
Judes best friend is a razor which helps him dull the horrific memories he carries with himself like a sack of thorns. The others try to help him along the way, with each friend losing a part of himself in the journey.  

This is a masterpiece of heartbreak and tyranny….not to be missed.
