Description

One of Wall Street Journal's Best of 2017 "Entertainingly mixes thrills and humor."—Entertainment Weekly "[An] amazing debut novel...? Dazzling and complex...? Fearlessly funny storytelling."—The Washington Post "Instantly engaging...? 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 Elan Mastai's acclaimed debut novel is a story of friendship and family, of unexpected journeys and alternate paths, and of love in its multitude of forms. It's 2016, and in Tom Barren's world, technology has solved all of humanity's problems—there's no war, no poverty, no under-ripe avocadoes. Unfortunately, Tom isn't happy. He's lost the girl of his dreams. And what do you do when you're heartbroken and have a time machine? Something stupid. Finding himself stranded in a terrible alternate reality—which we immediately recognize as our 2016—Tom is desperate to fix his mistake and go home. Right up until the moment he discovers wonderfully unexpected versions of his family, his career, and the woman who may just be the love of his life. Now Tom faces an impossible choice. Go back to his perfect but loveless life. Or stay in our messy reality with a soulmate by his side. His search for the answer takes him across continents and timelines in a quest to figure out, finally, who he really is and what his future—our future—is supposed to be. Filled with humor and heart and packed with insight, intelligence, and mind-bending invention, All Our Wrong Todays is a powerful and moving story of life, loss, and love.

Professional reviews

"While not a professional narrator, Elan Mastai is the perfect choice to narrate his own book about an imperfect, hapless man whose actions change the very fabric of the universe. Mastai counters the drama of the tale with a wry, humorous reading. The main character, Tom, is confused about most things, especially his place in this self-created misadventure. Mastai knows where to place humorous beats and when to emphasize events and play down others. Tom is self-aware enough to know his faults and when faced with the reality of what he has done, has an epic, chapter-long, profanity-laced meltdown. Mastai performs this with bravado and tremendous humor. This is time-travel for non-science fiction fans--and an audiobook to be enjoyed by everyone. G.D. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
