If You Like Tom Perrotta Books, You’ll Love…

One of Perrotta’s most popular novels is Little Children. This book tells the story of a group of thirty-ish parents of young children and the ways in which they deal with their lives. From the mother who thinks she can schedule her entire life to the father obsessed with fantasy games to the feminist mom with a bisexual past who never saw herself being domesticated. Life in this boring suburb gets very interesting over the summer and the status quo is thrown to the side.

The Leftovers asks the question: What if the Rapture happened and you got left behind? Except it’s not that easy as some of the people left weren’t the best and some of the people who were left behind were. The reason behind a portion of the population disappearing is unknown, but it does have a profound effect on the world. This is the story of those left behind, specifically Kevin Garvey and his family. The intricacies of the plot are varied, but the story is easy to explain: a family that is struggling to hold on to their beliefs in their own future and the variety of ways in which they cope with it.
