The People in the Trees

(Häftad)

Beskrivning:

A thrilling anthropological adventure story with a profound and tragic vision of what happens when cultures collide, from the bestselling author of the Man Booker Prize and National Book Award-nominated modern classic, A Little Life.

"Enthralling . . . deeply entertaining." --San Francisco Chronicle

It is 1950 when Norton Perina, a young doctor, embarks on an expedition to a remote Micronesian island in search of a rumored 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 has come at a terrible cost, not only for the islanders, but for Perina himself.

Look for Hanya Yanagihara's new novel, To Paradise, coming in January 2022.
