“All Our Wrong Todays” is my first novel, but I’ve been working for many years as a screenwriter, writing both indie movies and projects for the Hollywood studios, including scripts for Fox, Sony, Warner Brothers, and Paramount. My most recent film is “What If”—also known as “The F Word”—a comedy starring Daniel Radcliffe, Zoe Kazan, Adam Driver, Mackenzie Davis, Megan Park, and Rafe Spall, directed by Michael Dowse. I was fortunate to win the Canadian Academy Award and the Writers Guild of Canada Award for my screenplay. I was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia and currently live in Toronto, Ontario with my wife and kids and an Australian Shepherd named Ruby Slippers.

“There's no such thing as the life you're supposed to have.”
Elan Mastai, All Our Wrong Todays

“People talk about grief as emptiness, but it's not empty. It's full. Heavy. Not an absence to fill. A weight to pull. Your skin caught on hooks chained to rough boulders made of all the futures you thought you'd have.”
Elan Mastai, All Our Wrong Todays

“The problem with knowing people too well is that their words stop meaning anything and their silences start meaning everything.”
Elan Mastai, All Our Wrong Todays
