A Book Riot Best Fantasy Book of 2018

"A grand sweep of adventure and travel, war and romance--along with a generous amount of face licking--that will have dog lovers enthralled.... Tomorrow offers a rich exploration of love, life and loyalty, in a world whose sensory atmosphere is irresistible." --NPR

Venice, 1815. A two-hundred-year-old dog is searching for his lost master. And so begins Tomorrow, a story of love that spans the centuries and of hope as the world collapses into war. Tomorrow is a dog who must travel through the courts and battlefields of Europe in search of the man who granted him immortality. His is a journey of loyalty and determination, as he befriends both animals and humans, falls in love--only once--marvels at the human ability to make music and despairs at their capacity for war.

Tomorrow is a spellbinding novel of courage and devotion, of humanity across the ages and of the eternal connection between two souls.

Review quote

"A grand sweep of adventure and travel, war and romance -- along with a generous amount of face licking -- that will have dog lovers enthralled. ... Tomorrow offers a rich exploration of love, life and loyalty, in a world whose sensory atmosphere is irresistible." --NPR

"A tale of love and unbreakable bonds." --New York Post

"Celebrating the strength of human and animal ties, this compelling and satisfying novel is similar in spirit to Bruce Cameron's A Dog's Purpose and A Dog's Journey. But fans of time travel fiction such as Diana Gabaldon's "Outlander" books will also enjoy this work's descriptive cultural and historical detail." --Library Journal (Starred Review)

"Ornate, vivid, deeply coloured, and so precise I could smell and taste the world .... the story of a dog who will wait for the man he loves is moving and tender. I was captivated by its charm from the beginning." --Rachel Joyce, author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

"The memoir-like story is beautifully rich in perseverance, love, the sweetness of life, and memorable, evocative scents." --Kirkus Reviews

"A lyrical commentary on war, rivalry, sacrifice, and, above all else, loyalty." --Publishers Weekly

"The writing is filled with sensory descriptions, and the smells and sights of the evolving world are beautifully rendered by the diligent canine narrator. Humanity's foibles and failings are on full display, as well as the more heartfelt and loving moments between people and their dogs. This reads like a memoir but includes a touch of magic that makes the dog's journey back to his master feel both ephemeral and timeless. For fans of historical fiction or animal tales, Dibben's soulful debut is a charmer." --Booklist

"With a hint of Mary Shel­ley's Frankenstein and a dash of W. Bruce Cameron's A Dog's Purpose, Tomorrow confronts big questions about life's purpose and celebrates life's pleasures." --BookPage

"Tomorrow is a richly imagined tale of canine devotion, the meaning of faith, and the price of immortality." --Susan Wilson, author of One Good Dog

"With a beautiful voice worthy of its epic scope, Tomorrow grabs your attention, makes you think, and forces you to wonder just how powerful love can be." --Robert Repino, author of Morte

"Tomorrow is a profoundly magical journey into the soul of a dog and the transformative power of love. If you care about animals or humans, Damian Dibben's novel must be on your to-read list." --Neil Abramson, author of Unsaid and Just Life

"What a debut! What a novel! Ambitious but wonderfully achieved. A book to read again and again, especially for lovers of history and dogs." --Michael Morpurgo, author of War Horse
