Don’t Be Left Out: ‘The Leftovers’ Premiers Sunday Night on HBO

Belmont author Tom Perrotta’s 2011 novel “The Leftovers” about the aftermath on a small suburban New York town three years after a Rapture-like event in which two percent of the world’s population randomly vanishes premiers tonight, Sunday, June 29, at 10 p.m. on HBO cable.

The book, which was the 2013 One Book One Belmont selection, is being brought to the wide-screen TV by producers Perrotta and Damon Lindelof, best known for his work creating the ABC series “Lost” which dealt with many similar themes of coping within mysterious unsolved circumstances.

So far, media criticism has been widely mixed – see a sample of the reviews here – for what many are calling a bleak but interesting television.
