In the riveting new novel from the author of the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award finalist The Great Believers, a woman must reckon with her past when new details surface about a tragedy at her elite New England boarding schoolA fortysomething podcaster and mother of two, Bodie Kane is content to leave her past in the past—the family history that marred her adolescence and the murder of one of her high school classmates, Thalia Keith. Though the circumstances surrounding Thalia’s death and the conviction of the school’s athletic trainer, Omar Evans, are the subject of intense fascination online, Bodie prefers—needs—to let sleeping dogs lie.But when she’s invited back to Granby, the elite New England boarding school where she spent four largely miserable years, to teach a course, Bodie finds herself 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 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.One of the most acclaimed American writers working today, Makkai reinvents herself with each of her brilliant works of fiction. In I Have Some Questions for You, she has created an irresistible mash-up of a classic boarding school novel, a transfixing mystery, and a deeply felt examination of one woman’s reckoning with her past—how our perceptions of who we were shape who we are, and how we can learn to let go. Timely, hypnotic, and populated by a cast of unforgettable characters, it is her finest achievement yet.
