Rebecca Makkai – The Great Believers

VA110

English German

It’s 1985 in Boystown, Chicago, and Yale Tishman, a young development director at an art gallery, is still completely unaware that a virus will soon tear through the lives of him and his friends. The Great Believers by Rebecca Makkai is the first novel to trace the history of AIDS from its beginnings to the present day. It is a breathtaking panorama, masterfully told. A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award and a winner of several literature prizes. Host: Angela Spizig; German text: Florian Lukas
