“This author is on her way to becoming A NATIONAL TREASURE.” —Kirkus, starred review
“Today Will Be Different is so unique, so smart, so funny, so beautifully humane, so utterly of our times, it’s astonishing. I’ve scribbled exclamation points and underlined passages on almost every single page so I can go back and savor. I’ve started quoting it as if it’s already a classic—which, no doubt, it will be.” —Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl and Dark Places
Set in Seattle, New Orleans, Aspen, and New York City, Today Will Be Different is a day in the life of Eleanor Flood. Famed animator of the beloved television show Looper Wash, mother of Timby, her precocious makeup-wearing son, and wife of the star Seattle Seahawks hand surgeon, Joe, Eleanor has set the bar comically low for herself. Early on in the day, a graphic memoir (a real illustrated story within the story!) resurfaces from her past and threatens to reveal a buried family secret. From there, nothing turns out as expected.
