Bessie Book Club: A Little Life

Enjoy a sneak peek of the 2016 Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction shortlist with The Bessie Book Club.

Over the next six weeks leading up to the 2016 winner’s announcement, we’ll be featuring a sample from each book on this year’s brilliant shortlist. Next up is Hanya Yanagihara’s A Little Life, a story of four classmates from a small Massachusetts college who move to New York to make their way: broke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition.

Sit back, relax, kick off your shoes (maybe even pour yourself a cheeky Baileys) and enjoy the first chapter of A Little Life.
