's review

it was amazing

Adding my voice to the chorus of cheers for Rebecca Makkai's THE GREAT BELIEVERS. The book is beautiful and moving and broke my heart, as great fiction does. It is such an accomplished work, spanning decades, tracing the impact of the AIDS epidemic, its devastation and losses, on its characters, telling a great story at the same time. A+ without a curve.

Erika Dreifus Yes! It broke my heart, too. Rarely does a book literally make me cry. This one did.
