The Leftovers (Hardcover)
|Author: Tom Perrotta|
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.
