a€œComic 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.a€ a€”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 cana€™t stop visiting Dr. China€™s office because she needs to know that shea€™ll meet someone and be happy one day. Godfrey, another client, ends up at the envisionista€™s office only because his fiancAce 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 preoccupieda€”and too burdened by their pastsa€”to recognize it. This smart, fresh love story, with its quirky twists and turns, ponders lifea€™s big questionsa€”about happiness, fate, and our very existencea€”as it follows Evelyn and Godfreya€™s quest for the elusive answers. a€œA love story about love stories . . . The pages burst with laugh-out-loud scenes and crisply original set-ups. I loved it!a€ a€”Lydia Netzer, author of Shine Shine Shine a€œSomewhere between Jorge Luis Borgea€™s a€˜The Garden of Forking Pathsa€™ and The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind you will find Gregory Sherla€™s warm, intelligent debut novel.a€ a€”Roxane Gay, author of An Untamed State a€œEnormously appealing . . . Evelyn and Godfrey are two unforgettable characters youa€™ll root for and remember long after youa€™ve read the last page of this wildly original, deeply moving novel.a€ a€”Mindy Friddle, author of Secret KeepersIa#39;m wondering how clean my mouth has been these last three months. a€œIa#39;m sorry, a€ I say again. a€œI found the map, though.a€ He drops the toothbrush ... a€œIa#39;ll have to read about it on the music blogs.a€ a€œWhat about the Wii?a€ He pulls it out ofthe box.
