Gabrielle Zevin, author of previous book club favorites, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry and Young Jane Young, has authored a new novel that will stick with readers and leave them thinking long after they close the final page.
Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow, a line from Shakespeare’s Macbeth, takes place over the course of decades, following the friendship of Sam and Sadie. The two first meet as tweens in the ’90s, with video games as a common interest, and are reunited as college students, who turn their common interest into a business after releasing a video game that hits it big.
While the context of this novel is the video game production world, it’s not the true focus of the story, and even those who have no knowledge or interest in gaming will find themselves compelled by the twists and turns of Sam and Sadie’s personal and professional lives over the years and the complexities of their friendship, which is the true heart of this book.
