Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow: A Novel by Gabrielle Zevin
On a bitter cold day, in the December of his Junior Year at Harvard, Sam Masur exits a subway car and sees, amid the hordes of people waiting on the platform, Sadie Green. He calls her name. For a moment, she pretends she hasn’t heard him, but then, she turns, and a game begins: a legendary collaboration that will launch them into stardom. These friends, intimates since childhood, borrow money, beg favours, and, before even graduating college, they have created their first blockbuster, Ichigo: a game where players can escape the confines of a body and the betrayals of the heart, and where death means nothing more than a chance to restart and play again. Overnight, the world is theirs. Not even twenty-five years old, Sam and Sadie are brilliant, successful, and rich, but these qualities will not protect them from their own creative ambitions or the disloyalties of their hearts. This is the story of the perfect worlds Sam and Sadie build, the imperfect world they live in, and of everything that comes after success: Money. Fame. Duplicity. Tragedy.

Spanning thirty years, from Cambridge, Massachusetts, to Venice Beach, California, and lands in between and far beyond, Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow is a dazzling and intricately imagined novel that examines the multifarious nature of identity, disability, failure, the redemptive possibilities in play, and above all, our need to connect: to be loved and to love. It is a love story, but it is not one you have ever read before.

Elaine Newton is professor Emeritus of Humanities, Literature and Psychology at York University and a former book critic for the Globe & Mail.  From December to May, she is visiting professor of Literature and Film at the Philharmonic for the Arts in Naples, Florida where she has been a Lifelong Learning Favourite for more than 25 Years.
