Tomorrow

A wise old dog travels through the courts and battlefields of Europe and through the centuries in search of the master who granted him immortality

“Ornate, vivid, deeply colored, and so precise I could smell and taste the world. The story of a dog crossing continents and centuries in search of the man he loves is moving and tender. I was captivated by its charm from the beginning.” —Rachel Joyce, author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

Tomorrow tells the story of a 217-year-old dog and his search for his lost master. His adventures take him through the London Frost Fair, the strange court of King Charles I, the wars of the Spanish succession, Versailles, the golden age of Amsterdam and to nineteenth-century Venice. As he journeys through Europe, he befriends both animals and humans, falls in love (only once), marvels at the human ability to make music, despairs at their capacity for war and gains insight into both the strength and frailties of the human spirit.

With the rich historical vision of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell and the captivating canine perspective of A Dog’s PurposeTomorrow draws us into a unique century-spanning tale of the unbreakable connection between dog and human.

Praise for Tomorrow:

“Ornate, vivid, deeply colored, and so precise I could smell and taste the world… The story of a dog crossing continents and centuries in search of the man he loves is moving and tender. I was captivated by its charm from the beginning.”

–Rachel Joyce, author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

 

Tomorrow is a richly imagined tale of canine devotion, the meaning of faith, and the price of immortality.”

–Susan Wilson, author of One Good Dog

 

“With a beautiful voice worthy of its epic scope, Tomorrow grabs your attention, makes you think, and forces you to wonder just how powerful love can be.”

–Robert Repino, author of Morte

 

Tomorrow is a profoundly magical journey into the soul of a dog and the transformative power of love. If you care about animals or humans, Damian Dibben’s novel must be on your to-read list.”

–Neil Abramson, author of Unsaid and Just Life 

 

“The memoirlike story is beautifully rich in perseverance, love, the sweetness of life, and memorable, evocative scents.”

Kirkus Reviews

 

“The writing is filled with sensory descriptions, and the smells and sights of the evolving world are beautifully rendered by the diligent canine narrator. Humanity’s foibles and failings are on full display, as well as the more heartfelt and loving moments between people and their dogs. This reads like a memoir but includes a touch of magic that makes the dog’s journey back to his master feel both ephemeral and timeless. For fans of historical fiction or animal tales, Dibben’s soulful debut is a charmer.”

Booklist

 

“Celebrating the strength of human and animal ties, this compelling and satisfying novel is similar in spirit to Bruce Cameron’s A Dog’s Purpose and A Dog’s Journey. But fans of time travel fiction such as Diana Gabaldon’s “Outlander” books will also enjoy this work’s descriptive cultural and historical detail.”

Library Journal (Starred Review)

 

“With a hint of Mary Shel­ley’s Frankenstein and a dash of W. Bruce Cameron’s A Dog’s PurposeTomorrow confronts big questions about life’s purpose and celebrates life’s pleasures.”

“A tale of love and unbreakable bonds.”
