I Have Some Questions for You: A Novel (Large Print / Paperback)
In this non-traditional murder mystery, a forty-something podcaster returns to the boarding school where her classmate was murdered to rehash the crime. Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award finalist Rebecca Makkai (The Great Believers) addresses our obsession with true crime and the ethics that surround crime as entertainment. Along the way, she examines the failures of our justice system and how perspective changes our view of people and events. A lot to unpack and discuss!— Eve

“Rebecca Makkai redefines the campus novel for our current times. This was deftly written with such a fresh perspective and clever deconstruction of a murder case, I walked around my apartment fully immersed, book in hand.”
