From the Publisher:

What if the Rapture happened and you got left behind? Or maybe it wasn't the Rapture at all, but random disappearances that shattered the world in a single moment, dividing history into Before and After?

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." Kevin Garvey, the new mayor, wants to speed up the healing process, even while his own family falls apart. Through the prism of a single family, Tom Perrotta illuminates a familiar America made strange by grief and apocalyptic anxiety.

Praise

"Perrotta has delivered a troubling disquisition on how ordinary people react to extraordinary and inexplicable events, the power of family to hurt and to heal, and the unobtrusive ease with which faith can slide into fanaticism. THE LEFTOVERS is, simply put, the best TWILIGHT ZONE episode you never saw -- not 'The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street' but 'The Monsters Are Us in Mapleton.' That they are quiet monsters only makes them more eerie." - Stephen King 08/28/2011
