The New York Times bestselling author of The Vacationers and All Adults Here returns with This Time Tomorrow, a moving father-daughter story and whimsical twist on time travel asking an age-old question: what would you do differently as your teenage self?

On the eve of her 40th birthday, Alice’s life isn’t terrible. She likes her job, her apartment, her romantic status, and independence yet she feels like something is missing. Her father, the single parent who raised her, is ailing and seems out of reach. When she awakes the next morning and finds herself in 1996, it isn’t just her 16 year-old body that shocks her or the possibility of romance with her high school crush—it’s the vital, charming, 40-something version of her father with whom she is reunited. Armed with a new perspective on her own life and his, is there anything Alice should do differently this time around?

Straub’s other novels include Modern Lovers and Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures. Along with her husband, she is the owner of Books Are Magic, an independent bookstore in Brooklyn. Straub will be in conversation with Jennifer Close, the bestselling author of Girls in White Dresses, The Smart One, and The Hopefuls. Her latest book is Marrying the Ketchups.
