'A witty, time-travelling romance' Maria Semple, author of Where'd You Go, Bernadette
This is a love story that could only happen because of an accident of time travel.
Tom and Penny belong to a world so perfect there's no war, no poverty, no under-ripe avocados.
But when something awful happens to Penny, and Tom tries to make it right, he accidentally destroys everything, waking up in our broken, dysfunctional world.
Only here, Penny and Tom have a second chance.
Should Tom go back to his brilliant but loveless existence, or risk everything by staying in our messy, complicated world for his one and only chance at true love?

A novel about time travel has no right to be this engaging.
A novel this engaging has no right to be this smart.
And a novel this smart has no right to be this funny. Or insightful. Or immersive.
Basically, this novel has no right to exist."

Elan Mastai has conjured up a witty and freewheeling time-traveling romance that packs an emotional wallop. All Our Wrong Todays
is a page-turning delight -- Maria Semple, author of * Where'd You Go, Bernadette *All Our Wrong Todays
is elaborately constructed and incredibly emotionally intelligent; it's a story with super high stakes that genuinely makes you feel every part of Tom's awful predicament * SciFiNow *
Witty, original, funny, charming - a great story!
* Joe Haddow, BBC Radio 2 Book Club *
It's all very clever, but it's also not really the point. Because as well as being an intelligent sci-fi story, it's also a love story, and kind of a monomyth, and also just an incredibly relatable, insightful story about being in your 30s, feeling like you haven't achieved anything, and figuring out what's next * SciFiNow UK *
A timeless, if mind-bending, story about the journeys we take, populated by friends, family, lovers and others, that show us who we might be, could be - and maybe never should be - that eventually leads us to who we are * USA Today *
Mastai has a penchant for exuberant plot, a quick dash of character and fearlessly funny storytelling * The Washington Post *All Our Wrong Todays
is the mind-bending science fiction romance you need to read * Mashable *
