Eleanor knows she's a mess. But today, she will tackle the little things. She will shower and get dressed. She will have her poetry and yoga lessons after dropping off her son, Timby. She won't swear. She will initiate sex with her husband, Joe. But before she can put her modest plan into action—life happens. Today, it turns out, is the day Timby has decided to fake sick to weasel his way into his mother's company. It's also the day Joe has chosen to tell his office—but not Eleanor—that he's on vacation. Just when it seems like things can't go more awry, an encounter with a former colleague produces a graphic memoir whose dramatic tale threatens to reveal a buried family secret.

“I had the uncanny feeling, while reading Today Will Be Different, that Maria Semple somehow snuck into my house when I was asleep, took an X-ray image of my heart, then painted it by hand in neon colors. This book is searingly honest and hilarious and dark and neurotic." —Lauren Groff, Fates and Furies
