In the spring of 2015, Peter from Elliott Bay Book Company in Seattle sang the praises of this novel in hardcover. In the fall of 2021, lucky booksellers are eagerly devouring much-anticipated early copies of Yanagihara’s next book, To Paradise, which will release nationally January 11, 2022 but is available to preorder already from Village Books and other independent bookstores.
