Description

*** The Radio 2 Book Club Choice *** When Tom loses the love of his life, time travel seems like the only answer...what could possibly go wrong? Elan Mastai's breakthrough novel brings a whole new dimension to a classic love story. 'Sharp, funny writing in a mind-bending, time-travelling junket of a novel' Daily Mail So, the thing is, I come from the world we were supposed to have. That means nothing to you, obviously, because you live here, in the crappy world we do have. But it never should've turned out like this. And it's all my fault - well, me and to a lesser extent my father. And, yeah, I guess a little bit Penelope. In both worlds, she's the love of my life. But only a single version of her can exist. I have one impossible chance to fix history's greatest mistake and save this broken world. Except it means saving one Penelope and losing the other forever - and I have absolutely no idea which to choose ...Praise for All Our Wrong Todays 'Witty, original, funny, charming - a great story!' Joe Haddow BBC Radio 2 Book Club 'This lovely new novel is It's a Wonderful Life meets The Jetsons.Tom who lives in an alternate 2016 where all the sci-fi fantasies of the 1950s are a reality, suddenly finds himself stranded in our 2016, where he rediscovers his family, friends, and self.' BUZZFEED 'Imagine a world where 2016 was glorious: no Bowie, Brexit, Bake-Off, Bannon. That's where All Our Wrong Todays begins...Ambitious, funny, wry and philosophical, it's not surprising that author Mastai started off his life as a screenwriter (All Our Wrong Todays has already been picked up by uber-producer Amy Pascal) because this a book that has the grand scope of sweeping cinema peppered throughout' Emerald Street 'A thrilling tale of time travel and alternate timelines with a refreshingly optimistic view of humanity's future' Andy Weir, author of international bestseller The Martian 'All Our Wrong Todays is elaborately constructed and incredibly emotionally intelligent; it's a story with super high stakes that genuinely makes you feel every part of Tom's awful predicament' SciFiNow 'A novel about time travel has no right to be this engaging. A novel this engaging has no right to be this smart. And a novel this smart has no right to be this funny. Or insightful. Or immersive.Basically, this novel has no right to exist' Jonathan Tropper, New York Times bestselling author of This Is Where I Leave You and One Last Thing Before I Go 'Elan Mastai has conjured up a witty and freewheeling time-traveling romance that packs an emotional wallop.All Our Wrong Todays is a page-turning delight' Maria Semple, author of Today Will Be Different and Where'd You Go, Bernadetteshow more

Joe Haddow, BBC Radio 2 Book Club It's all very clever, but it's also not really the point. Because as well as being an intelligent sci-fi story, it's also a love story, and kind of a monomyth, and also just an incredibly relatable, insightful story about being in your 30s, feeling like you haven't achieved anything, and figuring out what's next SciFiNow UK A timeless, if mind-bending, story about the journeys we take, populated by friends, family, lovers and others, that show us who we might be, could be - and maybe never should be - that eventually leads us to who we are USA Today Mastai has a penchant for exuberant plot, a quick dash of character and fearlessly funny storytelling The Washington Post All Our Wrong Todays is the mind-bending science fiction romance you need to read Mashable This lovely new novel is It's a Wonderful Life meets The Jetsons.
