The Loft presents novelist Rebecca Makkai in conversation with Chris Mackenzie Jones. The conversation will explore Rebecca's new novel, The Great Believers, and the path she took in writing it. Of Rebecca's new novel, others are saying: 

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 

“Rebecca Makkai’s novel The Great Believers has stolen my heart. Crossing decades and lives, love and loss, art, and the long lasting legacy of AIDS, the novel is a brilliant triumph of empathy and intimacy between friends.” 
—Lidia Yuknavitch, author of The Small Backs of Children
