Product description


""The Futures" is a love story and so much more. It captures the heartaches and exhilarations of early adulthood with a keen eye, a big heart, superb writing and an artfully intricate plot. This is a book for people of all ages looking for a place in the world, and Anna Pitoniak is a young novelist with some serious writing chops."
"Meg Mitchell Moore, author of "The Admissions"

"Tender and wise, "The Futures" feels like a true story. Pitoniak's voice is stylish and authentic, and perfect for exploring this rich territory: youth and love and New York City."
"Karen Thompson Walker, author of "The Age of Miracles"""

"THE FUTURES transports us to that post-college moment when it seems like you have all the options in the world but no clue about which ones to choose. Pitoniak weaves an unflinchingly honest tale of two people trying to navigate expectations and learning to live with their own mistakes. A compelling and memorable debut." J. Courtney Sullivan, New York Times bestselling author of The Engagements

"Pitoniak's well-plotted, character-driven, interior-focused novel captures the knowable angst of the unknowable possibilities of modern young adulthood."

"This winter's cathartic read: a story that feels familiar yet wholly original, like every heartbreak ever."
Marie Claire

"An emotional page-turner"
The Futures

"The Futures takes place on the cusp of the 2008 market crash, and so perfectly encapsulates that time of life when everything was just beginning, when you had no idea who you were or where you were going."

"Mesmerizing.... The novel's alternating structure is hypnotic. Pitoniak is an absolute ventriloquist, completely inhabiting the voices of the two protagonists--their ambitions, anxieties, pettiness, sadness, and great love for one another. I couldn't put it down." Sunil Yapa, author of Your Heart is a Muscle the Size of a Fist

"Tender and wise, The Futures feels like a true story. Pitoniak's voice is stylish and authentic, and perfect for exploring this rich territory: youth and love and New York City." Karen Thompson Walker, author of The Age of Miracles

"An emotional page-turner"
