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. 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, examining identity, creativity, disability, failure, and, above all, our need to connect: to be loved and to love.

‘This is a boy meets girl story that is never a romance. .. charming but never saccharine. The world Zevin has created is textured, expansive and, just like those built by her characters, playful’ Observer
‘A novel that treasures the act of play and holds it sacred’ Guardian
