Hanya Yanagihara

  • Ils sont quatre amis de fac, et ils ont décidé de conquérir New-York : Willem, l'acteur à la beauté ravageuse ; JB, l'artiste peintre, aussi ambitieux et talentueux qu'il peut être cruel ;Malcolm, qui attend son heure dans un prestigieux cabinet d'architectes ; Jude, le plus mystérieux d'entre eux, celui qui, au fil des années, s'affirme comme le soleil noir de leur quatuor, celui autour duquel les relations s'approfondissent et se compliquent cependant que leurs vies professionnelles et sociales prennent de l'ampleur.
    Épopée romanesque d'une incroyable intensité, chronique poignante de l'amitié masculine contemporaine, Une vie comme les autres interroge aussi nos dispositions à l'empathie et notre façon d'endurer la souffrance, la notre comme celle d'autrui.

There is kind, handsome Willem, an aspiring actor; JB, a quick-witted, sometimes cruel Brooklyn-born painter seeking entry to the art world; Malcolm, a frustrated architect at a prominent firm; and withdrawn, brilliant, enigmatic Jude, who serves as their centre of gravity. Over the decades, their relationships deepen and darken, tinged by addiction, success, and pride. Yet their greatest challenge, each comes to realize, is Jude himself, by midlife a terrifyingly talented litigator yet an increasingly broken man, his mind and body scarred by an unspeakable childhood, and haunted by what he fears is a degree of trauma that he'll not only be unable to overcome - but that will define his life forever.
