Summary

The Leftovers is a story about sexual power and consent, the myth of the perfect victim and a dark exploration of the things we do for - and to - the ones we love.

Callie’s life is spent caring for others - for Frey, her client, and for Noah, her brother. When a tragic car accident shatters her family, she’s left alone with her mother, Vanessa. Vanessa's favourite child was Noah; Callie's favourite parent was her dad. Now they're stuck with each other - the leftovers of their family - and they'll have to confront the ways they've been hurt and the ways they've passed that hurt on to others.

Critic reviews

"It was dark and sad and powerful and poetic. Just addictive and bloody marvellous." (Louise Beech)
