A remarkable work of fiction, Yanagihara's novel demands full attention--not an easy undertaking with such brutal, emotionally abrasive subject matter. The characters are so human, so fully realized, that I wept openly in parts. It may not be what everyone would consider praise but to employ mind and body, to react viscerally, is not something I experience often. And it is the only book I've read that left me feeling I am a better person having done so.
