The world Yanagihara conjures up, full of dark pockets of mystery, is magical.
Impossible to resist
Absorbing, intelligent and uncompromising
Power and its abuses are at the heart of this richly imagined novel . . . In structure and subject, The People in the Trees pays tribute to Vladimir Nabokov's two masterpieces: Pale Fire and Lolita . . . Perina's voice – wry, superior, unthinkingly cruel – is one of the key triumphs of the book.
