Garth and 342 other people liked Alexander Patino's review of A Little Life:
A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
"You get a first read only once. I don't know what to say. It's the book of my life. Not that it mirrors my life, but that it's the literary love of my life. I know I get hyperbolic about this kind of stuff, but it is what it is. The most cathartic..." Read more of this review »
