A beautifully written debut novel. Based partially on the real life story of an anthropologist, the novel describes what happens when cultures collide and science interferes with nature. Though the islands that "The Dreamers" live on are not real, Yanagihara's story will have you thinking they are. This book is incredible; I've been recommending it to everyone I know!
