Handselling: The Hundred-Year House

Handselling: The Hundred-Year House

Rebecca Makkai is a Chicago-based writer of the beloved novel, The Borrower. This is the perfect time to presell her second novel, The Hundred-Year House, which will be available in July. Publisher’s Weekly gave it a starred review.

Makkai is active on Twitter and Facebook. Her official website includes essays, videos and interviews.

Here’s a review by our own Elizabeth Schieber. If you can use any of her words, steal them.
