The stunning debut novel, from the author of A Little Life. 'The world Yanagihara conjures up, full of dark pockets of mystery, is magical.' The Times It is 1950 when Norton Perina, a young doctor, embarks on an expedition to a remote Micronesian island in search of a rumoured lost tribe. There he encounters a strange group of forest dwellers who appear to have attained a form of immortality that preserves the body but not the mind. Perina uncovers their secret and returns with it to America, where he soon finds great success. But his discovery comes at a terrible cost, not only for the islanders, but for Perina himself . . . Hanya Yanagihara's The People in the Trees marks the debut of a remarkable voice in American fiction. 'An engrossing, beautifully detailed, at times amazing (and shocking) novel . . . I loved this book.' Paul Theroux

The world Yanagihara conjures up, full of dark pockets of mystery, is magical. * The Times * Impossible to resist * Daily Mail * Absorbing, intelligent and uncompromising * Independent * Power and its abuses are at the heart of this richly imagined novel . . . In structure and subject, The People in the Trees pays tribute to Vladimir Nabokov's two masterpieces: Pale Fire and Lolita . . . Perina's voice wry, superior, unthinkingly cruel is one of the key triumphs of the book. -- Katie Kitamura * The Guardian * Dazzling . . . A triumph of the imagination -- Anthony Doerr An engrossing, beautifully detailed, at times amazing (and shocking) novel . . . I loved this book. -- Paul Theroux Suspenseful . . . Yanagihara is a writer to marvel at. * The New York Times * A standout novel, a debut as thrilling as it is disturbing * The Wall Street Journal * Captivating and thoroughly unsettling * Vogue *
