Spring Fling: Rebecca Makkai Has Some Questions

Uncover old secrets with Rebecca Makkai as she discusses her latest novel I Have Some Questions for You, live in Melbourne for Spring Fling.


The author of The Great Believers and a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, Rebecca Makkai is back with an explosive new work. Described by the New York Times as ‘spellbinding’, I Have Some Questions for You is part campus novel, part true-crime podcast investigation, all told through the lens of the #MeToo era.

The evening will open with an electric monologue from Suzie Miller, creator of the Olivier Award-winning play – and now novel – Prima Facie. Then, join Makkai and host Rachael Brown as they reckon with the past and interrogate just how deep our obsession with true crime runs.

Presented in partnership with RMIT Culture.
