Hanya Yanagihara, author of the million-copy bestseller A Little Life, introduces her new novel, To Paradise, in conversation with Neel Mukherjee.

In an alternate version of 1893 America, New York is part of the Free States, where people may live and love whomever they please (or so it seems).

The fragile young offspring of a distinguished family resists betrothal to a worthy suitor, drawn to a charming music teacher of no means.

In a 1993 Manhattan besieged by the AIDS epidemic, a young Hawaiian man lives with his much older, wealthier partner, hiding his troubled childhood and the fate of his father.

And in 2093, in a world riven by plagues and governed by totalitarian rule, a powerful scientist’s damaged granddaughter tries to navigate life without him – and solve the mystery of her husband’s disappearances.

Hanya Yanagihara’s international bestseller A Little Life was shortlisted for the 2015 Man Booker Prize, shortlisted for the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction 2016, the winner of Fiction Book of the Year at the 2016 British Book Awards and a finalist for the 2015 National Book Awards.

Neel Mukherjee is the Man Booker-shortlisted author of A Life Apart, The Lives of Others, A State of Freedom and Avian.
