A Little Life: A Novel - Hanya Yanagihara

This book was brilliant, but brutal. There are some very graphic parts, and an overwhelming sadness, akin to how I felt reading Khaled Hosseini's books, pervades the story. But if you can take it, it is totally worth your time. Apologies to the people in the NY coffee shop with me when I finished—ugly crying in public is not usually my thing.
