Publisher's Summary

One o'clock A.M. Paula Hook lies awake next to her husband, Mike; her 16-year-old twins, Kate and Nick, are asleep down the hall. When the day begins, she and Mike will share a secret with their children that may change all their lives forever. Paula wants Kate and Nick to know a long hidden truth, a "bed-time story" that will reveal not just the secret but the often unexpected course of the lives, hers and Mike's, their families', the twins', that have been profoundly, if not always knowingly, shaped by it.

In an eloquent, emotion-filled narrative of Paula's life with Mike, she describes both the certain and the surprising ways that having children can mean "reconstructing the world". And Graham Swift gives us not only a quietly searing novel about the nature of family but also a dazzling meditation on how little it takes to transform the world.

What the Critics Say

"Simply one of the most sure-handed, savvy, and remarkable writers now at work." (Washington Post)
"Swift is a virtuoso of narrative ventriloquism: he inhabits his characters through their voices....Swift manages [a] pattering of motifs with exquisite economy." (New York Times)

    "not what I expected"

    I thought this was going to be about the twins adjusting to the secret the parents had to tell them. Instead it was about the mother thinking about telling them. She never even got out of her bed for the whole story.

    "OMG awful!"

    This is just awful. I love Kate Reading as a narrator and I am so disappointed in this really pointless waste of time and money!

    "The reviews here are entirely too rough"
    What made the experience of listening to Tomorrow the most enjoyable?

    This book is indeed in the minor key as it takes place inside the head of one woman over the course of one night, but that doesn't mean it's not grand in ambition and quite beautiful. The whole point is to delve deeply into one family, to see all their loves, fears, and worries. Its truly about people, and, if you find people interesting, then this book is for you. If you want pure plot or something like that, then maybe its not going to be for you. This is ALL character (and the narrator captures the emotional expression of the book quite well).

    Really, this one is not meant to be large and epic but that does not mean it does not have heart and emotion and beauty. It's quiet symphony is a great accomplishment.

    Annoyed with Audible because they wouldn't print my review about Ken Follett's "Fall of Giants"

    "Not As Bad As All That"

    Kind of a meandering story about unexceptional people. Not plotty but the story of a life and some pieces from it. Narrator is clear and easy to understand.
