The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta

The Bible Salesman

Recommended by Jeff in Technical Services…

Jeff’s synopsis:
After a rapture-like event named the Sudden Departure, the people of the suburban town of Mapleton try to deal with and find answers for their loss while deciding where to go and if they even have a future. Kevin Garvey, newly elected mayor, is trying to get the town back to some form of normalcy while his wife leaves him to join a group called the Guilty Remnant and his family falls apart.

He says:
To me this is quite a departure from the author’s previous novels being more serious and not as laugh out loud funny however it does have its dark humorous moments.
I also like that he offers no explanations or answers to what happened but just keeps us interested with what is going on with the people as they try to keep on living.
