In 2015, the Audible Editors named A Little Life Best Fiction Audiobook, and it is one of our Audible Essentials. The transcendent story follows four college friends who move to New York City, buoyed by ambition: Willem, an aspiring actor; JB, an artist; Malcolm, an architect; and, at the center, Jude, a withdrawn, brilliant attorney haunted by an unspeakable past. Through decades of shared and separate lives, Jude's suffering - and its impact on those who love him - raises questions about the limits of human endurance, the possibility for redemption, and the meaning of friendship.

Audible Studios recognized A Little Life's potential as a truly remarkable listening experience from the moment we read the manuscript. We fought to produce it ourselves, so we could cast a narrator whose powerful performance mirrors the endurance of Yanagihara's broken, beloved characters. Even Oliver Wyman's resilience starts to crack at the end, making A Little Life feel thoroughly alive - and anything but small.
