Hanya Yanagihara

El debut literario de la autora de Tan poca vida., el fenomeno editorial que ha cautivado a mas de un millon de lectores. Una novela absorbente, inteligente e inflexible que cautiva y perturba. .-The Independent En 1950, Norton Perina, un joven medico recien graduado, se une a una expedicion a una remota isla de Micronesia, Ivu'ivu, en busca de una misteriosa tribu. Alli comienza a investigar lo que lo llevara a ganar el Premio Nobel: la extrana longevidad de los islenos. Antes de regresar a Estados Unidos, decide adoptar a cuarenta ninos nativos para rescatarlos de la pobreza. Pero en 1995, uno de sus hijos lo denuncia por abusos… Mientras cumple condena, Perina, a instancias de su fiel colega Ronald Kubodera, escribe sus memorias con el fin de recuperar el prestigio perdido y demostrar su inocencia. Una historia llena de intriga sobre la ambicion y la naturaleza humana en la voz de un narrador sospechoso que, como Humbert Humbert, desafia nuestro sentido de la etica. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION A Best Book of the Year The Wall Street Journal * Publishers Weekly * Huffington Post * Cosmopolitan A Chicago Tribune and San Francisco Chronicle Notable Book 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. Disquieting yet thrilling, The People in the Trees is an anthropological adventure story with a profound and tragic vision of what happens when cultures collide. It marks the debut of a remarkable new voice in American fiction.
