Hanya Yanagihara, author of the million-copy bestseller A Little Life, introduces her incredible new novel TO PARADISE.
About this event with Blackwell's Manchester
We're thrilled to be welcoming Hanya Yanagihara, author of the modern classic A Little Life, to Manchester for one of just four UK dates celebrating the release of her phenomenal new book TO PARADISE - 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.
About the book:
To Paradise is a fin-de-siecle novel of marvellous 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.
This event is being held at Manchester Central Library in partnership with the Centre for New Writing.
Doors: 18.00, event starts: 18.30
