New Fiction Releases: The Leftovers, Wildwood

Two promising new fiction titles for today. The Leftovers is a tale of suburban America from Tom Perrotta, author of Little Children and The Abstinence Teacher. This one has a spooky premise: how would we react if some of the neighbors just... disappeared?

Wildwood is the debut young adult novel from Colin Meloy, the genius behind eccentric pop band The Decembrists. It's a tale of high adventure set in a fantastical, parallel-universe version of Meloy's hometown, Portland, Oregon.  (Could the title have been a nod to celebrity chef Cory Schreiber's real-world Portland restaurant of the same name?)
