Staff Reviews


In this book, Makkai juxtaposes a compelling and emotional mid-1980s Chicago-based AIDS drama with alternating chapters set in contemporary Paris. The result is an expansive view, not only of the epidemic, but the recurrent themes of devotion, loss, honoring the past, and carrying on. With The Great Believers, Makkai has crafted a multi-layered, smart, and gripping read that puts Chicago's LGBT community at the very front and center of the telling.
