A Little Life by Hanya Yanigahara
"This tear-jerker is a perfect way to get in touch with your softer side and maybe even cry a little bit. This raw and honest look at male friendship over several decades proves that all that this Men are from Mars, Women are From Venus business is hogwash. Yanagihara, a woman of color, knows her way around the male psyche better than most dudes do."
