Description

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.

Great book from Yanigahara
By: A. Budi

After reading "A Little Life", Hanya Yanagihara's second novel, my favorite book in a look time and a story that totally captivated me, I was ready to devour her debut novel, "The People in the Trees". I didn't come to the story with any knowledge of the real life individual that the core of this books was based upon, only learning more once I finished the story. The book is written in the form of memoirs from Dr. Norton Perina, rationalizing his life, brilliance and ultimate demise (alluded to in the very beginning of the book).
