Last night I finished reading Rebecca Makkai’s I Have Some Questions For You. It’s set in a high school boarding school with scenes moving between 1995 and the present. There is a scene in high school era where the narrator and one of her friends are sitting on the stairs and one of the boys comes behind them to take a picture. He puts his arms around the two girls, grabbing one of their breasts in each hand, hard enough to leave a bruise. The narrator is on the right, her friend on the left. Later, in the adult time-line the friend is diagnosed with breast cancer. The narrator hears this through another friend and her first question is “which breast.” The friend relaying the news doesn’t know, but later the narrator's conviction that it is the left one is soon confirmed.
