First great read of the New Year!

This wonderful, amazing, powerful insightful novel tells a story of our generation. I’ve longed for a novel that is this all-encompassing, this full of heart, and this honest about the current media environment in which we live. I’ve found it! It’s Gabrielle Zevin’s wonderful novel Tomorrow, Tomorrow, and Tomorrow! 

The story reminds me of the best of John Irving or Anne Tyler: a multi-decade, multi-character narrative that unwinds over years with great insight and compassion into all our main characters.


“Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow”Macbeth, Act V, Scene 5 – William Shakespeare (1564-1616)

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
