BODY:
American novelist Hanya Yanagihara's second novel A Little Life is a no holds barred tale of the friendship between four young men in New York City. It follows them from university graduation to their work life, friction with each other, but in essence shows how the bond they established as students survives a lifetime. It particularly focuses on the troubled childhood and tortured adult life of one of the group, Jude, who is a successful lawyer. A Little Life was nominated for the Man Booker Prize and the National Book Award. Hanya Yanagihara appears at the Auckland Writers Festival at the Aotea Centre next week.
EXTENDED BODY:
American novelist Hanya Yanagihara's second novel called A Little Life is a no holds barred tale of the friendship between four young men in New York City.

It tackles some pretty weighty subject material, self harm, the legacy of physical and sexual abuse, rape and human endurance.
It particularly focuses on the troubled childhood and tortured adult life of one of the group, Jude, who is a successful lawyer.
A Little Life was nominated for the Man Booker Prize and the National Book Award.

Syrian lawyer on adapting to a new life in NZ
BODY:
Mouhannad Taha talks to Kathryn Ryan about adapting to a new life and an entirely new judicial system in New Zealand.
EXTENDED BODY:
Due to fears of being targetted Syrian lawyer Mouhannad Taha left his home country in favour of a new life with his young family in New Zealand.
Taha was a lawyer in Damascus for 17 years until the horrors of the Syrian conflict and the precarious nature of his profession came too close to home.
First, a friend and colleague was kidnapped leaving court, then another was shot on his way home. He himself says he escaped death many times.
Finally, it got too much to bear when his cousin, her husband, and their twin daughters were kidnapped and then murdered.
Despite this Taha says the decision to leave was still difficult – as was the thought of adapting to an entirely new life, as well as a new judicial system.
That was over four years ago, and since relocating to Dunedin in 2012 he has become this country's first Syrian New Zealand qualified lawyer.

Why do Labrador eat so much? It could be down to genetics!
EXTENDED BODY:
Labrador retrievers are well known most for their insatiable appetites - but it may all be genetic.
UK-based researchers have found the scientific reason why the breed is obsessed with food and perhaps leads to their weight gain.
They found a fault in a gene known to switch off hunger, which tips the scales towards a 2kg gain in some Labradors, unlike dogs that don't have it.
It's also thought that this is why Labradors make such good service dogs because they are naturally more food driven and therefore easier to train.
Dr Elsa Flint is an animal behaviour expert and runs Animals with Attitude.
She talks to Paul Brennan about Labs and their endless appetites.

Selling Shakespeare. Shakespeare's plays have been exported to almost every country there is. In Neuss, Germany, a replica of the Globe has stood since 1991. In Bollywood, Shakespeare's stories have been retold since the dawn of Indian cinema, and become major money-spinners courtesy of movies such as Omkara (Othello) and Haider (Hamlet). In corporate America, his plays have been seized upon by executive training teams. And in China, Shakespeare's works are being marketed to a new generation of domestic consumers, eager for a taste of historical culture. Author and critic Andrew Dickson goes on a globe-trotting journey to find out how the Bard is still very much in business - and discovers one of the most successful and flexible cultural brands there is.
