The Latest
Novel From
Rebecca Makkai
June 19

The Great Believers is a magnificent novel — well imagined, intricately plotted, and deeply felt, both humane and human. It unfurls like a peony: you keep thinking it can’t get any more perfect, and it does. A stunning feat.”

Rabih Alameddine, author of The Angel of History and Koolaids: The Art of War

“Stirring, spellbinding, and full of life.”

Tea Obreht, author of The Tiger’s Wife

“In the remarkable The Great Believers, Rebecca Makkai conjures up a time as startling as a dream and, in its extremity, achingly familiar to us now, close enough to hold. A tender, sly, immersive, irreverent, life force of a book.”

Paul Lisicky, author of The Narrow Door: A Memoir of Friendship
