YanagiharaRama - Part I
Rick Morton, Bridie Jabour, Jordan Turner, and me! Discussing 'A Little Life' and Hanya Yanagihara as author, editor, and cultural icon.
Welcome to this week’s special edition! I need to tell you how much joy it is bringing me to get so very deep and down into one particular author’s oeuvre and impact. This is like literary nerd heaven, honestly, it’s the most grateful I’ve ever felt for the News & Reviews platform and project.
A reminder for everyone: there is no conversation about To Paradise this week. We’re leaving that for Part II in a fortnight so that you can finish reading it. Next week will be a regular edition from me, focusing on style, homewares, beauty, and the lighter things in life. I’ve been saving up some great recommendations for it.
This week you can watch a hilariously booze-affected ‘Hot Take-Off’ about A Little Life with Rick Morton and Bridie Jabour. Then read a long, fascinating to-and-fro conversation between myself and Jordan Turner about Hanya Yanagihara as author, editor, and cultural icon. Jordy and I discuss several of her interviews, a speech of hers, and the profiles of her (all hyperlinked for you) piecing together why she means so much to us.
