Rebecca Makkai & Gwen Mullins

The two guests on this month’s Open Book are the Chicago-based writer Rebecca Makkai and local writer and essayist Gwen Mullins. Rebecca Makkai’s recently published novel is titled I Have Some Questions For You. In a review in the New York Times, Hamilton Cain called it “whip-smart, uncompromising, and (mostly) a pleasure to read.”

This is open Book. My second guest this evening is local writer and essayist Gwen Mullins. Gwen is in the process of submitting her first novel to a publisher, while she’s also already working on her second. The new novel centers on a family coming to terms with the realization slowly growing that their son may be a psychopath. She has already written a short story about the family titled Violent Devotion. which was published in an anthology titled The Best Mystery Stories of 2022.
