The Great Believers, by Rebecca Makkai, is definitely one of the most profound novels I’ve read recently. It’s focus is on the height of the AIDS epidemic of the mid 1980’s and centers around relationships that comprised the gay community in Chicago at the time. The story is complex, moving and devastating, exploring a culture most people are loathe to try to understand, thinking it messy, immoral, and easier to ignore. Named one of the ten best books of 2018 by the NY Times, The Great Believers is profound, unforgettable, and beautifully sad. ~ Reviewed by Barbara Morrow
