I Have Some Questions for You by Rebecca Makkai

Staff Pick

Makkai's fourth novel has hallmarks of her earlier epic about the AIDS epidemic, The Great Believers: brilliant writing, compelling characters, and the author’s willingness to grapple with complex ethical issues in a changing social landscape. This time, Makkai uses the unsolved murder of a student at a New England prep school as the lens for examining changing gender norms, violence against women, and the role of new media in shaping public narratives. The protagonist, a film studies professor returning to her alma mater as a visiting instructor, must re-examine assumptions about the campus murder of a female student two decades earlier. Makkai turns a classic whodunit into a deeply layered and poignant consideration of what has and hasn’t changed in the #MeToo era.
