What to expect

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Tomorrow by Damian Dibben, read by George Blagden.

Tomorrow tells the story of a 217-year-old dog and his search for his lost master. His adventures take him through the London Frost Fair, the strange court of King Charles I, the wars of the Spanish succession, Versailles, the Golden Age of Amsterdam, 19th Century Venice and the Battle of Waterloo. As he journeys through Europe, he befriends both animals and humans, falls in love (only once), marvels at the human ability to make music, despairs at their capacity for war and gains insight into both the strength and frailties of the human spirit.

With the rich historical vision of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell and the captivating canine perspective of The Art of Racing in the Rain, Tomorrow draws us into a unique, century-spanning tale of the unbreakable connection between dog and human.
