Original Title: Tuyo es el mañana

Today you are going to be born. You shouldn't, but you will. You shouldn't because hell is out there. There are demonstrations day in and day out as well. People talk about elections. Of attacks. Of amnesties. […] But the story that will mark your life will happen much closer, a few kilometers away. It will happen in Barcelona and there will be a girl and a dog, a man and a woman, an old man and a painting. You hear the bells of a nearby church. You feel a new contraction. Today you are going to be born. You shouldn't, but you will. At midnight on March 18, 1977, the fate of a baby slipping through its mother's cervix will be linked to the lives of six individuals. Yours is tomorrow is the work of a skillful demiurge who, by inscribing the diverse and colorful voices of the characters in the sequence of time and space, recreates the interwoven web of chance that life is made of and reveals to us a magnificent garden of paths that converge.

Praises

«If I had to be born now, I would be so frightened that I would deny myself. Not only the world in general is strange, but also our most intimate world, where the language of terror is spoken. This book by Pablo Martín Sánchez is not only terrific for his mastery of style, but for his structure as intelligent as it is perfect. An extraordinary successor to Sterne and Perec».
Enrique Vila-Matas

«What I appreciate most when I read this work by Pablo Martín Sánchez is his great ability to surprise you, to invite you to think about each paragraph».
Màrius Serra

«A story whose story oscillates between humor and tragic feeling and critical ridicule».
Ana Rodríguez Fischer, Babelia
