Tomorrow Summary

Tomorrow by Graham Swift

On a midsummer's night Paula lies awake, Mike, her husband of twenty-five years asleep beside her, her two teenage children, Nick and Kate, sleeping in nearby rooms. The next day, she knows, will redefine all their lives.

Recalling the years before and after her children were born, she begins a story which is both a glowing celebration of love possessed and a moving acknowledgement of the fear of loss, of the fragilities, illusions and secrets on which even our most intimate sense of who we are can rest.

It is 1995. A revelation lies in store. Her children's future lies before them. The house holds a family's history and fate. As a millenium draws to its close, and as day draws nearer, Paula's intensely personal thoughts touch on all our tomorrows.

Brilliantly distilling half a century into one suspenseful night, as tender in its tone as it is deep in its soundings, Tomorrow is a magical exploration of coupledom, parenthood and selfhood, and a unique meditation on the mystery of happiness.

Tomorrow Reviews

Praise for "The Light of Day":
"The story draws the reader on like the best whodunit-or, whydunnit. Yet it is also a profoundly artful, beautifully weighted, resonant and humane literary novel."
--"Telegraph" (UK)
"Leave it to one of the great modern storytellers to pen a mystery where the crime is the least important element . . . Swift fashions the detective archetype into a workshop for a discussion of human identity."
--"Winnipeg Free Press"
"[Swift] is a wonderfully original writer and his new work lives up to his reputation as one of England's finest living novelists . . . an intriguing, even mystifying story of the power of passion, murder and redemption."
--"Toronto Sun"
Praise for "Last Orders":
"Graham Swift is a purely wonderful writer, and Last Orders, full of gravity and affection and stylistic brilliance, proves it precisely."
--Richard Ford
"Book for book, Swift is surely one of England's finest living novelists."
--"New York Review of Books"

"From the Hardcover edition."
