Charlie Lovett talks with author Rebecca Makkai about her new novel The Great Believers. Partly set at the height of the AIDS crisis in Chicago in the 1980s, Rebecca's new novel is beautifully written and has earned critical praise from the New York Times Book Review, NPR, and more. She and Charlie discuss their personal experience with the AIDS crisis, researching marginalized communities, and how art, Paris, and thirty years of history combine to make one great read.
