Description

About the Book: The People in the Trees

With This Astonishing Debut, Yanagihara Asks Searching Questions of The Human Condition In A Novel That Announces Her As A Bold, Provocative And Compelling New Voice In Literature

In 1950, a young doctor called Norton Perina signs on with the anthropologist Paul Tallent for an expedition to the remote Micronesian island of Ivuivu in search of a rumoured lost tribe. They succeed, finding not only that tribe but also a group of forest dwellers they dub The Dreamers, who turn out to be fantastically long-lived but progressively more senile. Perina suspects the source of their longevity is a hard-to-find turtle; unable to resist the possibility of eternal life, he kills one and smuggles some meat back to the States. He scientifically proves his thesis, earning worldwide fame and the Nobel Prize, but he soon discovers that its miraculous property comes at a terrible price...

Based On The Fascinating True Story of The Rise And Fall of Nobel Prize-Winner Dr Daniel Carleton Gajdusek

Reviews:

Captivating and thoroughly unsettling - Vogue

Yanagihara conjures up a physical and emotional world that is lavishly textured, hauntingly strange, and utterly convincing. This is a novel you will finish and immediately want to read again; a complex, elegant and wonderfully troubling debut. - Sarah Waters

This is an engrossing, beautifully detailed, at times amazing (and shocking) novel, and right up my alley: a far-off and beautiful place in the Pacific, islanders living to their own drumbeat, earnest meddling outsiders, and a sticky outcome - the Fall, with a lot of science and passion behind it, and an impressive debut for Hanya Yanagihara. I loved this book. - Paul Theroux
