I Have Some Questions for You
“Fresh, current and performed brilliantly by Julia Whelan and JD Jackson! I loved the way the story unfolded, the voice of the unassuming protagonist, and the way she used the "The one where...." and listed a few similar sad, remarkable events to show how repetitively these things happen. Don't sleep on this one! ”Melanie Chun,

“A scorching, compelling read, this is a calling out of violence against women: how it's reported, poorly prosecuted, lightly punished, sensationalized, ignored, held against us, and so deeply ingrained in our culture. A New England prep school is the perfect setting for this collision of podcasts, old secrets hidden deep, racism, sexism, growing pains, and the lenses we have, shed, and change as we grow. Julia Whelan's narration is, as always, phenomenal. I could not stop listening - this is a 10/10 for me.”Ashleigh,
“It's the one where they rush to judgment and incarcerate a black man on flimsy evidence. It's the one where people knew more than they said. It's the one where a woman is at the mercy of a man. This is a compelling book; a dark window into our culture where assumption, or proclamations of innocence or guilt often get in the way of the truth.....and women tend to pay the lion's share of the costs. It's an excellent audio book.”Kathy,

“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.”Kira Wizner,
“Rebecca Makkai is an expert story weaver. From minute 1, I was hyper-engrossed in her newest novel and it consumed every free moment I had for 48 hours. From it's quaint, cozy, and problematic boarding school campus to the world of podcasting, to an ever unraveling murder mystery, I Have Some Questions for You defies all expectations and keeps you on the edge of your seat!”Kimi,

“Rebecca Makkai’s latest novel explores the true crime genre with an awareness of its troubling use of murder as profitable entertainment. At the same time, however, her main character partly makes her living from a podcast about Hollywood’s abuse of actresses during the Golden Age, using her influential platform to help solve a decades-old murder. Makkai’s multi-layered narrative adroitly examines the fallibility of memories, both collective and personal; the complexities of the #MeToo movement; the judgments of the 'court' of social media; the inequities of the legal system; the prevalence of domestic violence; and the overt and covert racism, sexism, and class snobbery of elite prep schools...I Have Some Questions for You is ultimately a murder mystery with red herrings, unreliable witnesses, courtroom scenes, and proof hiding in plain sight. I was captivated from the very beginning. ”Shirley,

The riveting new novel — "part true-crime page-turner, part campus coming-of-age" (San Francisco Chronicle) — 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.
