Publisher's Summary

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, as well as a meditation on the mystery of happiness.

©2007 Graham Swift; (P)2014 Audible, Inc.

Paula Campbell Hook lies awake beside her sleeping husband, Mike, and worries about the shocking revelation that she and Mike will make to their 16-year-old twins tomorrow." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Like eavesdropping a confession...."

    This has made me look to my diary with eager anticipation of my next car journey...loved being drawn into the intimate world of this average-and-not-so-average family's life. Lindsay Duncan doesn't so much read the novel, but rather performs a dramatic monologue - for you - alone - intimately sharing a secret.
    Can't say to much about the substance of the story as that would rob you of your own gentle realisation of what she is talking about, but be assured this is a love story with some thought-provoking twists that are not exactly the stuff of action movie (but then why would you be listening to a Graham Swift novel if that's what you expected?)but does raise some questions about ...well about what I can't really tell you because that would spoil things for you. My only quibble is that we are being exposed to the big theme of this piece by a mother, a female narrator who is uncannily well drawn by this male author, but, can't help thinking that some (and only some)of the 'enormity' of the issues raised is characteristically male take on the subject. Can't really elaborate further without a spoiler alert!
    Go on, curl up with Lyndsay Duncan - irresistable!

    "Wow!"

    From the very first few minutes I knew this audio book was going to be good. Lindsay Duncan reads with real feeling and takes the listener on an intimate, poignant and powerful journey which holds your attention right to the very end.

    I highly recommend this audio book and wish I was listening to it again for the first time.

    "Perfect pairing of reader with book"

    An outstanding novel, read with sympathy and understanding by Lyndsey Duncan who gets right into the text.

    "A breath of fresh air"

    After a couple of indifferent books, in print and audio, this was like a long cool drink on a hot day. Such a relief to be in the hands of someone who can actually write.

    Certainly nothing much happens but there's such thought and intelligence here that it's a joy to listen to. Got me through many dull hours of decorating, anyway.

    "Tomorrow"

    Having downloaded at least two books every month from you for the past two years I have to say this is the most boring, egocentric, irritatingly slow book I have ever heard. Goodness knows how it ever got published - let alone put in audio form. It takes hours to reach its climax which is, in effect, a total non-event in today's world.
