Agony by Mark Beyer

In his first novel sinceThe Light of Day, the Booker Prizewinning author gives us a luminous tale about the closest of human bonds. On a midsummers night Paula Hook lies awake; Mike, her husband of twenty-five years, asleep beside her; her teenage twins, Nick and Kate, sleeping in nearby rooms. The next day, she knows, will redefine all of their lives. A revelation lies in store. Her childrens future lies before them. The house holds the familys history and fate. Recalling the years before and after her children were born, Paula begins a story that is both a glowing celebration of love possessed and a moving acknowledgment of the fear of loss, of the fragilities, illusions, and secrets on which even our most intimate sense of who we are can rest. As day draws nearer, Paulas intensely personal thoughts touch on all our tomorrows. Brilliantly distilling half a century into one suspenseful night, as tender in its tone as it is deep in its soundings,Tomorrowis an eloquent exploration of couples, parenthood, and selfhood, and a unique meditation on the mystery of happiness.
