In today's flashback, an outtake from Episode 401, my conversation with Hanya Yanagihara from February 2016.

Her novel A Little Life, won the 2015 Kirkus Prize, was a finalist for the National Book Award and the 2016 Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction, and was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize.

I spoke with Hanya as she was on tour in support of her award-winning novel, A Little Life.
