I Have Some Questions for You: A Novel

"Wow. Once I started this book, I was in it to the end; you’d have had to rip it from my hands to get me to put it down sooner. It’s a literary opus perfect for its time: a searing indictment of racism and privilege, an infuriating catalog of modern sexism, an earnest warning about reactionary politics, all swirled together in a gripping murder-mystery-slash-coming-of-age-story. Rebecca Makkai is going to make waves with this new work, and I can’t wait to see it happen. But be prepared - if you’re reading this as a woman, get ready to relive every injustice that every man or boy has ever inflicted on your tender soul."

“Unputdownable and unforgettable.” —Andrew Sean Greer, author of Less is Lost

“Part boarding school drama, part forensic whodunit, I Have Some Questions for You is a true literary mystery—haunting and hard to put down.” —Jennifer Egan, author of Candy House

The riveting new novel from the author of the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award finalist The Great Believers

A successful film professor and podcaster, Bodie Kane is content to forget her past—the family tragedy that marred her adolescence, her four largely miserable years at a New Hampshire boarding school, and the murder of her former roommate, Thalia Keith, in the spring of their senior year. Though the circumstances surrounding Thalia’s death and the conviction of the school’s athletic trainer, Omar Evans, are hotly debated online, Bodie prefers—needs—to let sleeping dogs lie.

But when the Granby School invites her back to teach a course, Bodie is inexorably drawn to the case and its increasingly apparent flaws. In their rush to convict Omar, did the school and the police overlook other suspects? Is the real killer still out there? As she falls down the very rabbit hole she was so determined to avoid, Bodie begins to wonder if she wasn’t as much of an outsider at Granby as she’d thought—if, perhaps, back in 1995, she knew something that might have held the key to solving the case.

In I Have Some Questions for You, award-winning author Rebecca Makkai has crafted her most irresistible novel yet: a stirring investigation into collective memory and a deeply felt examination of one woman’s reckoning with her past, with a transfixing mystery at its heart. Timely, hypnotic, and populated with a cast of unforgettable characters, I Have Some Questions for You is at once a compulsive page-turner and a literary triumph.
