An extraordinary book, at once smart, gripping and hallucinatory' OBSERVER'A page-turner taking in themes of isolation, race and class' GUARDIAN***THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER***A magnetic novel about two families, strangers to each other, who are forced together on a long weekend gone terribly wrongAmanda and Clay head to a remote corner of Long Island expecting a holiday: a quiet reprieve from life in New York City, quality time with their teenage son and daughter and a taste of the good life in the luxurious home they've rented for the week. But with a late-night knock on the door, the spell is broken. Ruth and G.

H., an older couple who claim to own the home, have arrived there in a panic. These strangers say that a sudden power outage has swept the city, and - with nowhere else to turn - they have come to the country in search of shelter. But with the TV and internet down, and no phone service, the facts are unknowable.

Should Amanda and Clay trust this couple - and vice versa? What has happened back in New York? Is the holiday home, isolated from civilisation, a truly safe place for their families? And are they safe from one another?_______SOON TO BE A MAJOR GLOBAL NETFLIX ADAPTATION STARRING DENZEL WASHINGTON AND JULIA ROBERTSSHORTLISTED FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD 2020Everyone is talking about LEAVE THE WORLD BEHIND'A book that could have been tailor-made for our times' The Times'An exceptional examination of race and class and what the world looks like when it's ending' Roxane Gay'A thrilling book - one that will speak to readers who have felt the terror of isolation in these recent months and one that will simultaneously, as great books do, lift them out of it' Vogue'Explores complex ideas about privilege and fate with miraculous wit and grace' Jenny Offill'For the reader, the invisible terror outside in Leave the World Behind echoes the sense of disquiet today in a world convulsed by the pandemic' Financial Times'Alam's achievement is to see that his genre's traditional arc, which relies on the idea of aftermath, no longer makes sense.
