Synopsis

If you could see your future with someone . . . would you?

Meet Evelyn and Godfrey. Evelyn is breaking up with her boyfriend, Adrian, as she's seen their dismal future together at Dr Chin's office: the life they may have when they are 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 one another.

Then, one day, Evelyn and Godfrey meet - and from that moment their lives become entwined.

Sparkling, warm and witty, The Future for Curious People is a love story for anyone who's ever wondered if they're with The One, or The One Before Last.

This novel combines the writing talents of twenty-seven-year-old newcomer Gregory Sherl, based on an original idea by award-winning author Julianna Baggott.

In the media

An enormously appealing novel that takes on the knotty questions of relationships, marriage, and fate, while never failing to entertain. Evelyn and Godfrey are two unforgettable characters you'll root for and remember long after you've read the last page of this wildly original, deeply moving novel
author of Secret Keepers and The Garden Angel
Comic and exuberant, The Future for Curious People is a fun romp through some pretty serious territory about love and the vagaries of the past and the future. With a robust sense of the absurd, Gregory Sherl brings us a touching story about one couple's journey through the impossible task of narrowing the future down to a certainty. A fine and tender tale for anyone who has tried to let go of the past and envision the future while falling in love. Some satisfyingly quirky minor characters, too

A whip-smart novel about the obsession of love and the love of obsession
