A little Life

In the worldwide bestseller A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, we follow four men over thirty years: lawyer Jude, visual artist JB, actor Willem, and architect Malcolm. The story relates their friendship, as they remain closely connected while developing their careers in New York.

Jude’s friends are facing a dilemma. How do you help someone who doesn’t want to be helped? Can you call yourself a friend if you don’t try to help? The introverted Jude has no family, his friends are everything to him. Yet, he finds it impossible to share his sore past with them. For him, openness and surrender mean abuse. In such a constellation, intimacy becomes impossible.

Can friendship cure the damage? Is sex essential to a romantic relationship? What is love actually able to do?
