All Our Wrong Todays

A Novel

"Entertainingly mixes thrills and humor." - Entertainment Weekly
"[An] amazing debut novel. . . . Dazzling and complex. . . . Fearlessly funny storytelling." -The Washington Post
"Instantly engaging. . . . 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
Elan Mastai's acclaimed debut novel is a story of friendship and family, of unexpected journeys and alternate paths, and of love in its multitude of forms.
It's 2016, and in Tom Barren's world, technology has solved all of humanity's problems - there's no war, no poverty, no under-ripe avocadoes. Unfortunately, Tom isn't happy. He's lost the girl of his dreams. And what do you do when you're heartbroken and have a time machine? Something stupid.
Finding himself stranded in a terrible alternate reality - which we immediately recognize as our 2016 - Tom is desperate to fix his mistake and go home. Right up until the moment he discovers wonderfully unexpected versions of his family, his career, and the woman who may just be the love of his life.
Now Tom faces an impossible choice. Go back to his perfect but loveless life. Or stay in our messy reality with a soulmate by his side. His search for the answer takes him across continents and timelines in a quest to figure out, finally, who he really is and what his future - our future - is supposed to be.
Filled with humor and heart and packed with insight, intelligence, and mind-bending invention, All Our Wrong Todays is a powerful and moving story of life, loss, and love.

Praise for All Our Wrong Todays
"Entertainingly mixes thrills and humor." - Entertainment Weekly
"[An] amazing debut novel. . . . Dazzling and complex. . . . Fearlessly funny storytelling. . . . In the alternative reality of our own day when many long for the chance to turn back time, some solace might be found in the masochistic pleasures of this trippy and ultimately touching novel."- The Washington Post
"Instantly engaging. . . . 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's model, openly acknowledged, is Kurt Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle , with its short chapters and snappy punchlines. He has caught the tone very well: a narrative voice at once wise and naïve, indignant and resigned, flip and deeply sad."- The Wall Street Journal
" All Our Wrong Todays is an incredibly creative work. It's as if Mastai time traveled and took copious notes of what a future utopian world would be. The science is as engaging as the romance. Mastai has mastered the art of endearing himself to an audience through both knowledge and entertainment. It's definitely out of this world-or an alternate universe."- Associated Press
"Imagine a world with flying cars, no aging, and casual trips to the moon. This one's about a guy who lives in that world, but accidentally shifts into the reality we all know . . . and it might be better for him. . . . We're hooked. Think: Outlander meets Back to the Future ."- The Skimm
"Shades of sci-fi, but also an endearing comedy about family and friendship."- New York Post
"[ All Our Wrong Todays ] earns the case it makes for the messiness, heartbreak, and imperfections of our world, and in doing so helped reconnect me to my fellow humans, whom, at the moment, I find inscrutable and frightening in equal measure."- Ron Currie, Chicago Tribune
"A multiverse trans-timeline love story. . . . All storytelling is time travel, but not all time-travel stories are worth telling, and though I don't have the word count to properly place All Our Wrong Todays in the pantheon of chrono adventures (somewhere between Voyagers and Ken Grimwood's Replay ), it more than deserves to be on readers' shelves in any timeline."- The Dallas Morning News
" All Our Wrongs Today belongs in a burgeoning genre of books like Andy Weir's The Martian that wrap self-deprecating dad humor around unabashedly nerdy science. . . . Refreshing."- GQ
"You don't have to be a sci-fi fan to become totally enthralled with this fresh, time-travel novel by screenwriter Mastai. . . . An utterly clever, entertaining love story." - RealSimple
"On top of this brilliant philosophical premise of parallel versions of one's life and the people in it-of what might have been had history unfolded different-Mastai's language is also rife with an infectious humor you won't be able to stop reading."- Harper's Bazaar
" All Our Wrong Todays is the mind-bending science fiction romance you need to read." -Mashable
"Witty, thoughtful, and entertaining."- Houston Chronicle
"Brilliant. . . . All Our Wrong Todays is a stunning work that adeptly broadens the sci-fi genre by giving these faces true believability."- Electric Review
"This is a science fiction love story that is by turns funny and wistful and smart, while remaining fully invested in how being human feels. Mastai has a sure hand with all of the elements of storytelling. . . . Mastai's jaunty prose is essential to the vibrant and engaging story."- Locus Magazine
"A novel filled with humor and heart, and saturated with insight, intelligence, and mind-bending invention." - BookBrowse
"Fascinating, intelligent, and written with a solid understanding of human nature, Mastai, an experienced screenwriter, shows a flair for novel writing. Working within the intellectual tropes of
