Summary
'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 HopeMeet Evelyn and Godfrey. Evelyn is breaking up with her boyfriend, who's passing out advertisements for his band on a snowy street corner in Baltimore. She's seen their dismal future together at Dr. Chin's office--she and her boyfriend, both many years older, singing 'Happy Birthday' to a Chihuahua and arguing about cheese. She hopes for more. Meanwhile, Godfrey is proposing to his girlfriend, Madge, who's not quite willing to take that leap; she wants to see their future together first--just to be sure they're meant for each other. The Future for Curious People follows Evelyn and Godfrey's soon-to-be-entwined lives, set in motion by the fabulist premise of a world with envisionists like Dr. Chin. As the characters struggle with their pasts and possible futures, they wrestle with sorrow, love, death, and fate.A novel that will capture you with its wit, its hopefulness, its anxious twists and turns, this love story is ultimately about finding happiness and accepting our fleeting existence.'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 Borges'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'A whip-smart novel about the obsession of love and the love of obsession.' 'Aaron Gwyn, author of Wynne's War
