SpecificationsAbout the Author Hanya Yanagihara lives in New York City.Author 1 Hanya YanagiharaBook Description When four graduates from a small Massachusetts college move to New York to make their way theyre broke adrift and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition. There is kind handsome Willem an aspiring actor; JB a quick-witted sometimes cruel Brooklyn-born painter seeking entry to the art world; Malcolm a frustrated architect at a prominent firm; and withdrawn brilliant enigmatic Jude who serves as their centre of gravity. Over the decades their relationships deepen and darken tinged by addiction success and pride. Yet their greatest challenge each comes to realize is Jude himself by midlife a terrifyingly talented litigator yet an increasingly broken man his mind and body scarred by an unspeakable childhood and haunted by what he fears is a degree of trauma that hell not only be unable to overcome - but that will define his life forever.Format PaperbackEdition Number 1Editor 1 Pan MacMillanEditorial Review A singularly profound and moving work . . . Its not often that you read a book of this length and find yourself thinking "I wish it was longer" but Yanagihara takes you so deeply into the lives and minds of these characters that you struggle to leave them behind. Fiona Wilson The Times A Little Life makes for near-hypnotically compelling reading a vivid hyperreal portrait of human existence that demands intense emotional investment . . . An astonishing achievement: a novel of grand drama and sentiment but its a canvas Yanagihara has painted with delicate subtle brushstrokes. Independent One of the pleasures of fiction is how suddenly a brilliant writer can alter the literary landscape . . . Ms. Yanagiharas immense new book . . . announces her as decisively as a second work can as a major American novelist. Here is an epic study of trauma and friendship written with such intelligence and depth of perception that it will be one of the benchmarks against which all other novels that broach those subjects and they are legion will be measured. Wall Street Journal How often is a novel so deeply disturbing that you might find yourself weeping and yet so revelatory about human kindness that you might also feel touched by grace? Yanagiharas astonishing and unsettling second novel . . . plumbs the rich inner lives of all of her characters... You dont just care deeply about all these lives. Thanks to the authors exquisite skill you feel as if you are living them . . . A Little Life is about the unimaginable cruelty of human beings the savage things done to a child and his lifelong struggle to overcome the damage. Its pages are soaked with grief but its also about the bottomless human capacity for love and endurance . . . Its not hyperbole to call this novel a masterwork - if anything that word is simply just too little for it San Francisco Chronicle Martin Amis once asked "Who else but Tolstoy has made happiness really swing on the page?" And the surprising answer is that Hanya Yanagihara has: counterintuitively the most moving parts of "A Little Life" are not its most brutal but its tenderest ones moments when Jude receives kindness and support from his friends . . . "A Little Life" feels elemental irreducible-and dark and disturbing though it is there is beauty in it Jon Michaud New YorkerGrade NewView Full Specifications SpecificationsAbout the Author Hanya Yanagihara lives in New York City.Author 1 Hanya YanagiharaBook Description When four graduates from a small Massachusetts college move to New York to make their way theyre broke adrift and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition.

SpecificationsAbout the Author Nelson Mandelas legacy lives on as his grandson Ndaba Mandela continues to keep its beacon of hope bright fueling its fiery message that one person can make a difference. Ndaba is the cofounder and cochairman of the Africa Rising Foundation an organization dedicated to promoting a positive image of Africa around the world and to increasing its potential for growth in the areas of education employment and international corporate alliances for profit and partnership. Ndaba is also the longest serving ambassador of UNAIDS which seeks to end discrimination around HIV/AIDS. Ndaba was named one of the "28 Men of Change" by Black Entertainment Television and is showing the world through his actions and orations that Nelson Mandelas voice and message of freedom still rings true. He lives in South Africa.Author 1 Ndaba MandelaBook Description The first-ever book to tell Nelson Mandelas life through the eyes of the grandson who was raised by him chronicling Ndaba Mandelas life living with and learning from one of the greatest leaders and humanitarians the world has ever known. To the rest of the world Nelson Mandela was a giant: an anti-apartheid revolutionary a world-renowned humanitarian and South Africas first black president. To Ndaba Mandela he was simply "Granddad." In Going to the Mountain Ndaba tells how he came to live with Mandela shortly after he turned eleven--having met each other only once years before when Mandela was imprisoned at Victor Verster Prison--and how the two of them slowly cautiously built a relationship that would affect both their lives in extraordinary ways. It wasnt an easy transition. Mandela had high expectations for those around him especially his family and Ndaba chafed at the strict rules and exacting guidelines in his grandfathers home. But at the same time--through overheard calls from foreign dignitaries as well as the Xhosa folk wisdom that his grandfather shared with him at every opportunity--Ndaba was learning how to be a man. On a scale both personal and epic Ndabas extraordinary journey mirrors that of South Africas coming of age--from the segregated Soweto ghettos into which he was born to the privileged life in which he grew up and the turbulent yet exciting times in which he carries on his grandfathers legacy. Going to the Mountain is in the end a story about unlocking the power within each of us. Its a cautionary tale about how a childs life can go one way or the other depending upon the intervention of a caring soul--and about the awesome power of love to serve as a catalyst for change.ISBN-13 9780316486576Language EnglishNumber of Pages 272Publication Date 26 June 2018Publisher Hachette Books SpecificationsAbout the Author Nelson Mandelas legacy lives on as his grandson Ndaba Mandela continues to keep its beacon of hope bright fueling its fiery message that one person can make a difference.

She died in 1924.Author 1 Frances Hodgson BurnettFormat PaperbackEdition Number Reprint EditionEditorial Review "The Secret Garden should be on every childs bookshelf" The Times "The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett is my "current" favourite childrens book. I reread it to my six-year-old daughter last summer and both of us loved it - although she did require me to have a go at the full Yorkshire accent for Dickon which proved a little bit tricky. It has magic darkness whimsy and truth and the fact that it was first published in 1909 yet still managed to enthral my 21stcentury daughter is a testament to its greatness" Kirsty Young "The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett is a wonderful story that I could think myself into given that the heroine is the sort of awkward little girl that I thought I was. I loved the idea of a secret place where children could be on their own" Nina Bawden "So what makes these different to any other set of classics? In a moment of inspiration Random House had the bright idea of actually asking Key stage 2 children what extra ingredients they could add to make children want to read. And does it work? Well put it this way...my 13-year-old daughter announced that she had to read a book over the summer holiday and without any prompting spotted The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas...and proceeded to read it! Now if you knew my 13-year-old daughter you would realise that this is quite remarkable. She reads texts blogs and tags by the thousand - but this is the first book she has read since going to high school so all hail Vintage Classics!"
