2 ARCs of Today Will Be Different by Maria Semple – claimed thanks

June 10, 2016

Maria Semple was the author of Where’d You Go Bernadette, which circulated over 4000 times in our system! She is coming out with her new wickedly funny and madcap account of a woman tracking down her husband on one day in Seattle, along the way coming to some realizations about her life. We have 30 copies on order to start and I think we’ll need every one.

Publisher SuToday Will Be Differentmmary: One of these is an early ARC and the other A brilliant novel from the author of Where’d You Go, Bernadette, about a day in the life of Eleanor Flood, forced to abandon her small ambitions and awake to a strange, new future.  Eleanor knows she’s a mess. But today, she will tackle the little things. She will shower and get dressed. She will have her poetry and yoga lessons after dropping off her son, Timby. She won’t swear. She will initiate sex with her husband, Joe. But before she can put her modest plan into action-life happens. Today, it turns out, is the day Timby has decided to fake sick to weasel his way into his mother’s company. It’s also the day Joe has chosen to tell his office-but not Eleanor-that he’s on vacation. Just when it seems like things can’t go more awry, an encounter with a former colleague produces a graphic memoir whose dramatic tale threatens to reveal a buried family secret. TODAY WILL BE DIFFERENT is a hilarious, heart-filled story about reinvention, sisterhood, and how sometimes it takes facing up to our former selves to truly begin living.has the cover art and is revised, I believe.
