In 1950, Norton Perina, a young American doctor, joins an anthropological expedition to a remote Micronesian island in search of a rumoured lost tribe. There he encounters a strange group of jungle-dwellers who appear to have attained a form of immortality that preserves the body but not the mind. Perina uncovers their secret and returns with it to America, where he soon finds great success. But his discovery has come at a terrible cost, not only for the islanders, but for Perina himself.

AUTHOR EVENTS

20 May 2022

To Paradise is the first novel by Hanya Yanagihara since her decades-spanning saga of survival and suffering A Little Life won over the world and became a Booker Prize-shortlisted bestseller. Remarkably, her follow-up is even more ambitious in scope, traversing some three centuries and differing versions of America, and exploring themes of love, loss and the elusive promise of utopia in a fictionalised New York. Hear from Hanya as she introduces her newest novel to Australian audiences in conversation with Anton Enus. Hanya will be appearing live in person. This event is Auslan interpreted.
