To Paradise by Hanya Yanagihara 701 pages

Although To Paradise is a fascinating book, it is difficult to describe. It is divided into three parts: New York in 1893, Hawaii in 1993 and New York in 2093. The names of many of the characters are the same in each section, yet their roles and circumstances are entirely different. Most of the main characters are gay and on the verge of making a disastrous discovery.

I realize this is a poor summary of To Paradise, but for me it was impossible to give a brief description of this unique work. It is exciting, perplexing, frightening and a true page turner. I believe people will discuss To Paradise for a long time.
