The Leftovers   

 

What if the Rapture happened and you got left behind? Or what if it wasn’t the Rapture at all, but something murkier, a burst of mysterious, apparently random disappearances that shattered the world in a single moment, dividing history into Before and After, leaving no one unscathed? How would you rebuild your life in the wake of such a devastating event?

This is the question confronting the bewildered citizens of Mapleton, a formerly comfortable suburban community that lost over a hundred people in the Sudden Departure.

Tom Perrotta is the author of six works of fiction, including The Wishbones, Election and  Joe College.  His novels Election and Little Children were made into acclaimed and award-winning movies.  He lives outside of Boston.
