Book Description: 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. : Review: 'Nothing rings false, all the emotions are just large enough... : the book weaves and undoes its quiet magic.' -- Guardian: 'Swift's writing throughout is as assured and subtle as ever.' -- Spectator: 'This is a writer of easy subtlety...whose writing gets its best : effects from tiny but striking abstractions.' -- Independent on Sunday: 'characters are appealing and vivid, the details of their : courtship and marriage tenderly rendered.' -- Daily Mail: 'this is Graham Swift at his impressive best' -- Times Literary Supplement : Book Description: Booker Prize-winner Graham Swift offers a masterful and compassionate novel about the mystery of happiness.
