To Paradise Audiobook Free by Hanya Yanagihara

To Paradise (2021)

A daring, beautiful book, about lovers, family, grief, and the elusive promise of utopia.

New York is a component of the Free States in a different version of 1893 America, where individuals are free to live and love as they desire (or so it seems). The frail young scion of a wealthy family refuses to get married to a deserving suitor because she is lured to an attractive music instructor with little money.

A young Hawaiian guy hides his terrible past and the fate of his father while living with his much older, richer girlfriend in a 1993 Manhattan besieged by the AIDS pandemic. In 2093, a prominent scientist’s traumatized granddaughter struggles to navigate life without him and unravel the mystery of her husband’s disappearances in a world where diseases are rampant and totalitarian authority is the norm.

“Yanagihara’s comprehension of the aching need to protect people we love, and the sorrow that results when we cannot, is what gives this wonderful story its immense impact.”

The Book Guide® Editor

These three pieces work together like an imaginative symphony as recurring tones and melodies grow and build upon one another: A townhouse in Greenwich Village’s Washington Square Park; sickness and the exorbitant costs of treatment; wealth and squalor; the definitions of family and nationhood; race; the perilous righteousness of the powerful and revolutionaries; and the gradual realization that an earthly paradise cannot exist. Characters in these Americas are all in conflict with the characteristics that constitute humanity: fear, love, shame, need, and loneliness.
