In case you were wondering, today over at the Booker Prize website, Dua Lipa has planted her flag squarely in the pro-A Little Life camp.
“I will happily admit, as a devoted and lifelong reader, that there are more than a few books that have made me cry,” she writes. “But Hanya Yanagihara’s A Little Life is different: it was one of the first books where I openly sobbed after reading. By the end of it I felt profoundly changed. I’m not exaggerating when I say this novel challenged everything I thought I knew about love and friendship. It’s one of those books that stays with you forever.”
