    Jane Fallon, bestselling author of My Sweet Revenge
  • An emotional page-turner

    New York Post
  • An unflinchingly honest tale of two young people trying to navigate expectations and learning to live with their own mistakes. A compelling and memorable debut

    J. Courtney Sullivan, author of The Engagements
  • The Futures reminded me of Brightness Falls, Jay McInerney's great novel of New York, for Pitoniak, like McInerney, possesses an instinctual understanding of the mechanisms that make the city run and a knack for embracing her characters' thornier sides. Utterly enjoyable

    Joanna Rakoff, author of My Salinger Year
  • The Futures is a haunting story of a relationship going wrong, set against the backdrop of a world that feels like it has gone utterly wrong, too. This will appeal to anybody who's been an early twenty-something and not known where life will go next. I loved it

    Gillian McAllister, author of Everything but the Truth
  • 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
  • Anna Pitoniak's debut novel, The Futures, is the perfect cocktail of smart prose, heartwarming characters, and unmatched savvy about modern city life. Like The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. or A Fortunate Age, this book will amaze and elate you

    Kristopher Jansma, author of The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards
