Review

An absorbing, intelligent and uncompromising novel which beguiles and unnerves. The first memorable novel of 2014 is already here --Independent



Told in the form of a memoir in the voice of the extremely unlikeable Perina, it is impossible to resist being drawn into the mind of this brilliant but depraved man. And to feel a little disturbed at having enjoyed such a strange but brilliantly told story. The book is packed with a symphony of complex themes made accessible by the sheer poetry of the author's prose --Daily Mail



Power and its abuses are at the heart of this beautifully written debut... Striking and highly satisfying. Yanagihara's ambitious debut is one to be lauded. --Guardian



Feels like a National Geographic story by way of Conrad's Heart of Darkness... the world Yanagihara conjures up, full of dark pockets of mystery, is magical. --The Times



Suspenseful... Thanks to Yanagihara's rich, masterly prose, it's hard to turn away... Yanagihara is a writer to marvel at --New York Times



A standout novel, a debut as thrilling as it is disturbing... So exciting... Haunting --Wall Street Journal



Yanagihara's enthralling debut... is at once learned, morally serious and deeply entertaining... In Perina, Yanagihara has created a perverse and spellbinding narrator --San Francisco Chronicle

Review

“Haunting ... A standout novel ... thrilling.” (The Wall Street Journal)

“Exhaustingly inventive and almost defiant in its refusal to offer redemption or solace. ... As for Yanagihara, she is a writer to marvel at.” (The New York Times Book Review)

“Captivating―and thoroughly unsettling.” (Vogue) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
