Bookseller Review by Fleur:

This book took me by complete surprise and utterly stole my heart! Its framework is the world of gaming and gamers, and I am the opposite of a gamer, I might previously have described myself as an anti-gamer (as my teenage son will confirm!). But what a framework! Gaming provides the most perfect metaphors, narratives and insights into the loves and lives of the characters. And the beautiful glue of the novel is love – the greatest glue of all! Covering themes like creativity, work, relationships, integrity, maturity, loss, illness, disability, success, histories… There is so much to digest after finishing – I know I’ll be thinking about this book for ages! And I’m desperate to have more people to talk about with, so please buy it!

Description

‘An exquisite love letter to life’ TAYARI JONES, Women’s Prize-winning author of An American Marriage

This is not a romance, but it is about love

Two kids meet in a hospital gaming room in 1987. One is visiting her sister, the other is recovering from a car crash. The days and months are long there. Their love of video games becomes a shared world — of joy, escape and fierce competition. But all too soon that time is over, fades from view.

When the pair spot each other eight years later in a crowded train station, they are catapulted back to that moment. The spark is immediate, and together they get to work on what they love – making games to delight, challenge and immerse players, finding an intimacy in digital worlds that eludes them in their real lives. Their collaborations make them superstars.

This is the story of the perfect worlds Sadie and Sam build, the imperfect world they live in, and of everything that comes after success: Money. Fame. Duplicity. Tragedy.

Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow takes us on a dazzling imaginative quest as it examines the nature of identity, creativity, disability, failure, the redemptive possibilities in play and, above all, our need to connect: to be loved and to love.
