Free admission
Hanya Yanagihara is celebrated by American critics (Wall Street Journal has described her as ‘a leading American writer’), and has received numerous nominations for the most prestigious awards (National Book Award, Man Booker Prize). The new star of American novel, Yanagihara has been invited by the OCC to come to Athens. It only took two novels for her to be noticed by the US literary community.

The first novel, The People in the Trees, was included in the best publications of 2013. Two years later, she published A Little Life, which secured her a place in the elite of contemporary American writers. Both works are characterized by ‘subversive intelligence’: two stories of sexual abuse, whose peculiar shade alludes to Vladimir Nabokov.


Curated by: Afroditi Panagiotakou, Pasqua Vorgia
