Yanagihara is a writer for Conde Nast – and has now put out this book. Like unreliable narrators? Disturbing imagery? Georgeous, lush prose? Dive into this book. It’s a confessional narrative, framed as someone trying to set the record straight, about a young doctor in the 1950s who’s gone to the south Pacific to investigate a tribe of natives who are completely removed from the modern world – many, even, are removed from those an island away, and how that world, and the man, change over decades. It may well be a work of genius, but it’s also extremely triggery and disturbing.
