Hanya Yanagihara Synopsis: The People in the Trees is a standalone novel by Hanya Yanagihara. The year is 1950 when Norton Perina, a young doctor, leaves on an expedition to a remote island in Micronesia to look for a rumored lost tribe. There he encounters a strange group of forest dwellers who appear to have attained a form of immortality that preserves the body but not the mind. Perina uncovers their secret and brings it back Stateside, where he soon finds great success. But his discovery has come at a terrible price, not only for the islanders, but for Perina too.
