Textul de pe ultima copertă

"Comic and Exuberant . . . A fine and tender tale for anyone who has tried to let go of the past and envision the future while falling in love." --Rhonda Riley, author of The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope

What if you could know your romantic future? What if an envisionist could enter the name of your prospective mate into a computer that would show you a film of your future life together?

In The Future for Curious People, a young librarian named Evelyn becomes obsessed with this new technology: she can't stop visiting Dr. Chin's office because she needs to know that she'll meet someone and be happy one day. Godfrey, another client, ends up at the envisionist's office only because his fiancee insisted they know their fate before taking the plunge. But when Godfrey meets Evelyn in the waiting room, true love may be right in front of them, but they are too preoccupied--and too burdened by their pasts--to recognize it.

This smart, fresh love story, with its quirky twists and turns, ponders life's big questions--about happiness, fate, and our very existence--as it follows Evelyn and Godfrey's quest for the elusive answers.

"A love story about love stories . . . The pages burst with laugh-out-loud scenes and crisply original set-ups. I loved it!" --Lydia Netzer, author of Shine Shine Shine

"Somewhere between Jorge Luis Borge's 'The Garden of Forking Paths' and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind you will find Gregory Sherl's warm, intelligent debut novel." --Roxane Gay, author of An Untamed State

"Enormously appealing . . . Evelyn and Godfrey are two unforgettable characters you'll root for and remember long after you've read the last page of this wildly original, deeply moving novel." --Mindy Friddle, author of Secret Keepers
