Tomorrow
fullDescription

In his first novel since The Light of Day, this Booker Prize winning–author gives us a new, quietly searing novel about the nature of family and about the combination of fact and story that can be made to form the most essential truths.

1:00 a.m. Paula Hook lies awake next to her husband, Mike; her sixteen-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." In Tomorrow, 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.

        July 23, 2007
        This splendid novel by Booker Prize–winner Smith (for Last Orders
        ) has its roots in the 1960s sexual awakening and takes place over the course of a sleepless night in June 1995. 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. Paula recalls her meeting with Mike at university in 1966, when sex was free and easy (“a glut of it”), the immediate consummation of their sexual passion, their marriage and successful careers, and the birth of the twins after almost a decade together. Mainly, Swift explores the ways in which secrets are created to ensure happiness, and the potential for emotional damage when the truth is revealed. Swift has channeled the tenderness in Paula’s voice with uncanny exactitude, granting her a mother’s sentimental observations about pregnancy and raising children. He drops a few clever red herrings, so the narrative retains the vibrato of suspense until the secret is revealed. But the novel’s remaining pages, which convey the exaggerated “doomsday” fears of middle-of-the night wakefulness, seem padded. In essence, this moving exploration of marriage and parenthood is a ringing affirmation of modern life.
