I Have Some Questions for You, by Rebecca Makkai

Staff Pick

Rebecca Makkai’s fourth novel is a departure from her third, The Great Believers--but equally engrossing and with comparable emotional weight. A suspenseful campus saga, it also examines the shifting approaches to racism and misogyny over several generations as well as the ethics of the true crime genre itself.  Set in the present, it follows the tenacious podcaster and professor, Bodie Kane, through ruminations that wind back to the 1995 murder of Bodie's boarding school roommate and the event's aftermath. Makkai tells a taut, tense story with no easy answers.

Tell Me I'm Worthless, by Alison Rumfitt

Staff Pick

Tell Me I'm Worthless is a haunted house story that juxtaposes the horror of the supernatural with that of living in the present. The narrative is anchored by Alice and Ila, two former friends and sometimes lovers who bear the internal and external scars of a night that saw the gruesome death of their friend Hannah. Estranged and on very different paths as the novel opens, the two women attempt to face the darkness that has haunted them since it tore them apart. Rumfitt's macabre work is unflinching and offers readers no tidy endings, leading us to wonder if the protagonists will be all right--and if any of us can ever be said to be all right.
